New Primary: Papillary Carcinoma With Microinvasion

But a few months ago I noticed two tiny nodules in the skin above my suture line. Had them biopsied.
The path report came back positive for papillary carcinoma with microinvasion.
MO is not advocating for radiation, but is sending me to the RO to get more info so I can make an informed decision.
