Signatera blood test for detecting molecular residual disease
I’ve just finished my chemo (year), surgery and radiation and even though I had a PCR after the neoadjuvant TCHP, I’m super anxious about this recurring given that my tumor was HER2+/Hormone negative with a Ki67 of 90%. (Anything over 20% is classified as “high” so knowing mine is 90% seems like extremely bad news. My MO offered that I could have the tumor analyzed for DNA then I’d get my blood drawn and analyzed for residual tumor DNA strands that could be detected. Has anyone had this done? It’s a scary proposition since there’s a part of me that would just like to move on and “forget about it”, if that’s possible. The thought of hearing there was cancer still present and the thought of starting on yet another round of chemo is depressing. I haven’t felt normal during treatment and would love to get back to being who I was pre-cancer.
