    I was just diagnosed with grade 3 invasive ductal carcinoma with Positive Her-2 protein and positive estrogen. I only took Actemra for 3 months. No prior history of breast cancer on either side of the family. I am having a left mastectomy on 9/22/2017. I have Rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, osteopenia, and fibromyalgia. I also have high cholesterol now after taking the Actemra. I am really scared and don't know if I should have a double mastectomy or not. What are the chances that I might get cancer in my other breast?
