What were the biopsy results? I've had MALT lymphoma in the breast. It's not common but others on the nhl-MALT@yahoogroups actually have had it too.
Well, not good. It came back as NHL (follicular center origin). I'm still being staged but grade is 1 or 2 (Indolent). I was told it is rare to see it presented in the breast also. Mine has the t14 and 18 markers that distinguishes itself as follicular. Thanks for asking.
Just be sure you have doctors who are very familiar with low-grade (indolent) lymphomas. Lymphomas are not treated like other cancers. I had MALT in my breasts, not follicular, so I don't know about it first-hand, but I do know that second opinions are always a good idea, too.
