Prior to surgery results vs. after surgery results
After a routine Mammogram, ultrasound and biopsy, it was confirmed I have stage1 Type 2 invasive Carcinoma non aggressive. The spot that was found was 5mm buried deep in the tissue of my right breast. It was in a place I would never have found it on my own. There is no lump. The ultrasound did not see any limp node involvement. It is ER+PR+ HER2- I am doing a genetic test. My brother has stage 4 metastatic prostate cancer. His genetic test came back negative. I have an appointment with the surgeon on Nov 30th.
one of my biggest fears is that they will find more cancer in my limp nodes during surgery that will change the stage and type. I can’t stop crying! How frequently does the cancer stage and type change after a surgery?
