    wtf, it seems that based on updated statistics that Oncotype has lowered the recurrence risk percentages associated with their score. My mom had the test in 2015, got a 13 score with an 8% recurrence. I just got mine last month, and it gave me a 20 score with a 6% recurrence. The scores can also differ based on whether you had a node negative or node positive test--they are done differently with different scores associated with differing %s. I am not sure if they used to break out the tests as node negative/node positive, and it's possible that the node negative scores have become associated with lower percentages if they have now broken out the tests and statistics separately and did not used to.
