Hi,
Breast cancer is curable if discovered in its early stages.
Mastectomy is a low risk surgery and can be done at your age even if you have CHF.
In addition, there are other alternatives to surgery such as hormonal therapy and oral chemotherapy.
If you give me more details, I would be able to give you more information about your case.
- What are the symptoms you had?
- Is it unilateral or bilateral?
- The result of the biopsy in details.
Please don't worry of something not sure.
I am waiting for the result so that we can discuss your options.
Good luck.
Dr. Ahmed Bahaa.
