    You have the most common type of breast cancer with an intermediate grade. If you have other questions, please let us know. So sorry you're here but remember that breast cancer is highly treatable with a plethora of medications and research behind it.

    I am sorry you find yourself here. Have you met or spoken with your doctor about these results? While bco members can help with general info, we are not doctors and more importantly, not your doctor. Please contact your doctor for specifics on what the results mean for you specifically. Take care

    Your doctor will have additional information which will help determine your treatment plan: if you are estrogen and/or progesterone positive or negative, Her2 positive or negative, size and location of tumor(s), lymph node involvement, etc. You might need an MRI or other imaging to answer some of these questions. All of the preliminary testing can sometimes take a while and be very nerve-wracking, but once all the information is in place, there WILL be a treatment plan that is doable. You will be in good hands.
