Alexandra Andrews, Claudia Kruggel, and Peter Ravdin, MD, PhD
Aromatase inhibitors may keep estrogen from feeding tumors. The three aromatase inhibitors currently in use are: Arimidex (anastrozole) and Femara (letrozole) which are non-steroidal aromatase inhibitor, and Aromasin (exemestane) is which is a steroidal aromatase inhibitor

Alexandra Andrews, Sarah Schorr, RN
Recognition of Post Breast Therapy Pain Syndrome (PBTPS) by the medical profession is in the early stages.You may find yourself in the position of having to advocate the severity of the issue to your doctor, and/or holding either your surgeon or oncologist responsible for addressing a solution to the problem

RC280.B8.A5.3 - Post Breast Therapy Pain Syndrome: The Patient Perspective
Alexandra Andrews, David Bradley, Eileen Pichersky
It is estimated that between 10% and 30% of patients will suffer persistent pain after breast surgery... it seems to be a more common occurrence in axillary dissections or total mastectomies than in breast-conserving surgeries

RC280.B8.A5.5 - Scarves after Surgery
Alexandra Andrews and Chloe Hansson
After breast cancer surgery, some women may experience pain and be uncomfortable or totally unable to wear a prothesis. Many who suffer from post mastectomy syndrome (happens with lumpectomies too) are unable to wear bras or anything tight. What can one do about the one-sided look?

RC280.B8.A57.1 - Make A Wish
D J Arthur
That is how I feel like we are - a crew that is connected for a while, each part of a close group, but each traveling our own separate yet often similar paths to our destiny, some surviving, but others of us ending as sparkling stars for someone to wish on - a kaleidoscope of colors. Maybe some day someone can find a way to help rescue us.

I consider myself a traveler, not a survivor, and I travel on this cancer journey, I walk or crawl or run this cancer road. It's more like being a P.O.W. We're living, breathing, fighting but always kept captive by this beast, and always hoping for release from the bars that try to hold us back.

Susan Andrews
Where can your breast cancer recur? How will you know? What are some of the symptoms? The following are some examples of symptoms and sites where the cancer could return. These examples I'm listing is what led some of the ladies from my support group back to the doctor. Some just went back and found the cancer returned without symptoms

RC280.B8.B98.1 - Persistent Pain after Breast Surgery

The postmastectomy syndrome is a fairly common sequel of breast surgery. All patients should be warned that it may occur, and that if it does, it does not signify a recurrence of cancer.

RC280.B8.B323.1 - Impact of aging on the biology of breast cancer - Part 1
Christopher Benz, MD
Breast cancer is a heterogeneous malignancy; its age-specific incidence profile rises exponentially until menopause and increases more slowly thereafter, reflecting the superimposition of early-onset and late-onset breast cancer rates. Geroscience is still in its infancy. Emergent molecular and cellular hypotheses put forth to explain the cancer-aging relationship are of interest but remain largely untested.

RC280.B8.B323.2 - Impact of aging on the biology of breast cancer - Part 2
Christopher Benz, MD
Initial studies comparing early-onset and late-onset ER-positive breast cancers for DNA mutations and whole genome aberrations as well as RNA transcriptome differences suggest that epigenetic changes rather than genotypic variation account for most of the age-dependent biological and clinical differences observed in hormone-dependent breast cancer.
