My primary tumor is strongly ER/PR negative (0%) and strongly Her2 positive (3+++). This is at 11:00 anteriorly on my right breast. Now, they found a small tumor at 9:00 posteriorly on the completely opposite side of my breast through an MRI guided biopsy and this one is ER+ (90%) PR+(50%) and Her2 negative (only 10% staining).
Bottom line, they are calling this a completely new and separate cancer occurrence. With this news, my plans are changing from hoping for a lumpectomy to probably bilateral mastectomy. Ugghhh!
