Just got Pathology report, Invasive Ductal Carcinoma, looking for others with similar diagnosis
I just found out earlier today via a Pathology report that my biopsy came back as Invasive Ductal Carcinoma.
My tumour is approx 4cm wide, and it seems like I also have abnormal axillary lymph node.
These are my results and I am trying to understand them before I go in and speak with the Surgeon on Friday:
1. BREAST: Breast, Right 7 o'clock position Biopsy, Right breast US guided 14 G core biopsy 7 ocl 1 fn
Breast, right (7 o'clock 1FN), 14G ultrasound guided core biopsy:
- Invasive ductal carcinoma
- Please see comment
Core biopsy sections show infiltration by carcinoma, Nottingham histologic grade III/III in this limited sample, with focal necrosis. An in situ component is not identified.
Hormone receptors and HER2 will be reported in an addendum.
Order Comments: A - Abnormally enlarged right axillary lymph node.
1 - Large 4 cm irregular mass in the 7 o'clock position.
So I'm left wondering:
Did anyone have a similar pathology report? What should I expect next?
