Question: I am 70 y.o. woman, my breast are real large, often had lamps, but Vitamin E did a good job. At this time, during core needle biopsy on right breast, doctor without telling me, neither asking my permission, installed Neoadjuvant chemo, which made my right breast immediately shrink substantially. Lab diagnosis: Infiltrating mammary carcinoma with lobular features, intermediate grade. Nothing diagnostic of lymphovascular invasion identified. I have HR positive. HER-2 negative. Ki-67 low. (HR)- positive. Now doctor insists on a full mastectomy, but been 70 e.o. I am not agree. My question, is: if this thing is going to continue exist in my breast, then, would it anyhow negatively influent on my health? Or now, do I must to have surgery, in order to remove it (like, could it be like a bomb waiting its time?). It's 4 month since it's been done, and my both breast often feel like electric shock. My sincere Thank you. XXXX

Brief Answer:
Surgery as early as possible

Detailed Answer:
Heli Mrs. XXXX, thanks for trusting health care magic.
I understand your anxiety about the issue
In my opinion you should get it removed a full mastectomy with Sentinel lymph node biopsy at the earliest as you rightly said its a bomb in waiting.
Being hormone responsive it will definitely respond very well To chemotherapy but that is only after surgery that too if need arises.
Dont refrain from surgery and natural therapy though safe but will not be effective.
I dont know anyone near your place personally but guess you can ask your GP who can guide you much better.
Wish you best of health

I am experiencing a pain in my left arm running from the middle of my arm through my forearm and into my fingers. The pain resembles an electric shock and is continuous. It is not my entire arm, but deep within it. I am a male, age 48, 6 10 and 250 lbs. I had a pericardial effusion about 5 years ago, but no other heart related illnesses. However, cardio issues do run in my family. I have been a nonsmoker for the last 5 years, since the illness mentioned above. I have taken a 325mg aspirin. I use Prilosec OTC once daily for my acid reflux, but no other meds or known medical issues. I am unemployed/uninsured, so going to a hospital is a big decision. So, I am asking an opinion first from you.
