No, it absolutely does not mean that. I had invasive ductal carcinoma, stage 3, grade 3, and 3 tumors. They did not spread to the rest of the breast, and I was able to have a lumpectomy (along with chemo and radiation--all of which was very do-able). That was a little over 5 years ago, and I have not had a recurrence. I know it is scary to have a diagnosis, but there are a number of positive things here, namely that yours was caught early. Don't let the lingo--IDC throw you off track. I'm sure your MD is right: You've got this and you will be OK.
