My wife had a 3cm tumor in her left breast and some discoloration in another area. She was originally going to have a lumpectomy but changed her mind and got a full nipple saving masectomy with reconstruction. There was no cancer detected in any other area of her breast and her sentinal nodes and surrounding nodes were cancer free. We are fairly sure that she does not have cancer cells in her system and wonder how much different her prognosis is with or without chemotherapy and with or without radiation.
