Aprendendo sobre o câncer de mama
Depends on all other specifics to her case. I had a diagnosis of DCIS then had a lumpectomy and the pathology on the tumor showed invasive cancer cells. Then I had a second surgery to check the sentinel node. My nodes were negative. I had an oncotype DX test on the tumor which tests for risk of reoccurrence and if chemo would be beneficial. My score was on the high, but indeterminate side and chemo was recommended since risk was high. I start next week. So, all things need to be taken into consideration (these were just a few for me). The oncotype DX test is expensive, but telling. Hope this helps.
