No sentinel node were found during sentinel node biopsy
Hi, i have a few questions and i wonder if anybody had the same experience.
1. I recently had my Mastectomy done and the doctor performed a sentinel node biopsy for me. However strange enough after the surgery he says that he couldn't find the sentinel node and histopathology report came back with 2 axillary lymph nodes removed however they are not stained with blue dye. This worries me as would this means a non-conclusive of the lymph node involvement as there's so little lymph nodes were being tested and there is still high chance that there are other lymph nodes may be positive.
2. Report also says tumor emboli are found in lymphatic channels but there is no evidence of perineural / venous invasion. Should i be worried of micrometastatis?
3. i had a Nottingham histologic grade 2 with tubular / pleomorphism score 3 but mitopic scare 1. Does this consider an aggressive type?
I was advised for hormonal therapy, but my fear is it could have high recurrence and trying to see what else i need to take care of - or anything i can do.
