Is Oncotype test always ordered? Are there are genetic tests I could request in addition?
Had a lumpectomy 10 days ago and SBN. Stage 1, grade 1, no lymph no involvement 90/98 EST/PR.
My surgeon has made no mention of the Oncotype score and when I called the lab for my biopsy results, they said I would need to ask my surgeon to submit for genetic tests. Is this normally how it's done?
Also, are there any additional genetic tests I could request that would show my odds of reoccurance? (Breast Cancer Index test?) I have degenerative disc disease and dread AI.
I'm assuming 90/98 EST/PR means my occurance could be high without AI?
Thank you kindly for taking the time to respond! Such a helpful group.
