      than 2 cm. Mine was in lymph nodes.

      Suggested treatment was surgery, radiation, chemo and tamoxifen.

      I did surgery only and Traditional Chinese Medicine for the rest.

      My biggest decision/fear was whether to keep eating tofu or not. I don't eat it much now and I used to eat it everyday.

      And I was off work for 2 months I swear. Now, I did have 2 surgeries and I do work a very physical job, but mostly I think I'm just a wimp!

      Tracy B Ann - technically that is my signature.

      Low grade, low stage, E +, small size--all really good indicators. Whew!

      Some DKos series & groups worth your while: Black Kos, Native American Netroots, KosAbility, Monday Night Cancer Club. If you'd like to join the Motor City Kossacks, send me a Kosmail.
