Spoke with my oncologist, Dr. Ellis, at Swedish Hospital. She carefully inspected my pathology and results of the surgery (8 mm tumors, no cancer in the lymph nodes, not even microscopic). She says that my cancers were "benign" (non-aggressive) -- or at least as benign as invasive tumors can be.

Bottom line:
I had cancer but I DO NOT HAVE CANCER ANYMORE. I won’t need chemo or radiation.* I just have to heal from my surgery and get hormone therapy.

Happy, happy, HOORAY!

Thank you for you supportive, warm, healing thoughts and prayers!!!

*However, martybl has given me a reference that I need to read and discuss with Dr. Ellis before being 100% sure.
