So I had my lumpectomy 2/27 for a radical scar that was found during my biopsy and it all went well. My pathology came in and I haven’t had it discussed with my dr yet this is what the results follow:

Radical scar with sclerosing adenosis with focal atypical ductal hyperplasia

p63 immuno stain is positive

anyone know what that means?

    Hi @charchar8 , It looks like the results of the lumpectomy were benign and removed the suspicious cells. Radial scars and sclerosing andenosis are benign. Atypical ductal hyperplasia is not breast cancer but indicates you are at increased risk for developing it in the future. Your doctor will probably monitor your breast health closely and have other suggestions for how to help prevent it. The p63 immuno stain is what showed the hyperplasia in the lab. I’m glad you got a good result.
