Lymph node ultrasound?
I am new here. I was diagnosed with IDC on 12/21/22. I had an appointment with my surgeon on 1/10 where I learned that my breast cancer is stage 1 and triple positive. I am scheduled for a mastectomy on 2/2 followed by Chemo, possibly radiation, and HER2 therapy.
I'm very comfortable with the doctors I have lined up, but we decided to get a second opinion from a doctor at another hospital system in our area. She basically concurred with the treatment plan I have in place. The only difference is that she said she would do an ultrasound of my lymph nodes. If anything showed up, it's possible they'd recommend chemo prior to surgery.
Do any of you have experience to share or thoughts about this?
I should probably add that I have an MRI scheduled for next week and we are also waiting on genetic testing results.
Thanks in advance for any insight you can share!
