    There are many variables in determining the best treatment. Size, type, grade (how aggressive), age, quality of life, contained or infiltrating, has it spread.... The team of doctors and patient can determine the best plan, An oncotype score can predict how the tumor will respond to treatment. Research using breast cancer,org, cancer.org and this website will be great resources about treatment. Keep the questions coming! We are here for you!

    What has your doctor(s) told you? I had an Oncotype DX test to see if I needed chemo. like my onc. recommended. It indicated I could get by with an estrogen blocker only but in agreeing to it it would drop my recurrance rate down. I also had 28 rad. treatments. I decided to be as aggressive as I could and don't regret it. Gather your info. and make decision(s) right for you as each case is different.
