I have stage 2B grade 2 invasive breast cancer. My tumor is over 2 inches, it is unknown if I have lymph node involvement. I am 26 and hope to have children someday. Do I need hormone therapy if my cancer is only 15% estrogen responsive?
I am in the process of harvesting my eggs bc I'm only 30 and my husband and I want kids in the future. I will start chemo as soon as the harvesting ends. Look up the Fertile Hope program. We qualified to get all of our fertility drugs for free ($10k!!!).
Feel free to message me if you have questions. I know how it feels to be younger.
I would think you need a hormone blocker, but that is a question for your onc. Saving eggs before chemo is a good idea. I read your other post, & I would for sure talk with another onc. Prayers to you.
