Newly diagnosed with TNBC: PET scan????
I am new here and completely devastated. Just got diagnosed with TNBC (HER2 is indeterminate at 2+ and sent for FISH).y MO appointment is on Wednesday, followed by a SO appointment.
Stats so far: tumor is 2.8 cm, one biopsies LN in the axilla is negative. They are scheduling a breast MRI.
My question is the following…. Does everyone get a full body PET prior to initiating chemo? Do they automatically do that to rule out distant mets, or do they just go by breast MRI and start the chemo?
I know it’s silly, but I don’t want the PET. I like to be in denial, lol. If metastatic, I might just give up
