Newly diagnosed - waiting for MRI and appt w/ surgeon
Hi all, I'm a 33 year old mom of 4 who was just diagnosed with IDC. I had a mammogram for a lump I found back in December and they also found several groups of pleomorphic micro-calcifications. I was sent for biopsies, one for the lump and one for the calcifications and both came back as cancer. The information has been a bit overwhelming, and I'm anxiously awaiting my appointment with the surgeon on Thursday.
The micro-calcifications are grade 2, comedonecrosis present, ER+ 80% heterogeneous, PR+ 15%, HER2-, ki-67 30%. And mucinous. And so many other things I have no idea what any of it means.
The tumor is .7cm, IDC with background of DCIS, grade 2, comedonecrosis present, PR+ 95%, other hormone receptors still pending. And again, many other terms I don't know the meaning of.
Anyway, if anyone has any insight while I'm sitting around waiting, I would be so so grateful. Thanks.
Update: the MRI showed a lot more cancer than any of us realized. Good news is my lymph nodes look ok so far. Bad news is, I’m stage 2 and will need chemo, mastectomy, and then radiation. Going to get a biopsy next week on something they found in the other side, then a PET scan, then I go see the oncologist and get the ball rolling on treatment.
