Stage 3C Patient
My guess-- and this is only a guess-- is that if your onc thought it would spread in a week and a half, they would order a rush operation. Theta are many factors that make certain types of breast cancer more aggressive. I started rush chemo less about 2 weeks after diagnosis, with port placement operation the week in between. I had double mastectomy 7 months later. My cancer did not spread! I wish you well with your operation!
