Pathology did not include hormone receptor status
I had an excisional biopsy on Thursday, March 16th. I just got the results today - DCIS, grade 3. There is other information on the report, but nothing that relates to the hormone receptor status. When the nurse called me to go over the information, she said that she didn't see it either and would ask the pathologist. She said usually it's there.
Does anyone know if they have to run extra testing that takes longer for this info? I am already trying to process that I just got a cancer diagnosis and now my mind is spinning to places wondering if they forgot to check it and if they still have the tissue, etc.
Just looking for any reassurance or similar experiences anyone else has had. I have so many questions about the diagnosis in general too, but one thing at a time.
Thank you so much!
