This is not exactly a new topic but I was wondering if anyone else had a profile like this and got targeted ER positive treatment. All tumors in same breast.

Thanks for Any feedback,
Peggy

PeggySull, I noticed nobody answered your post. I was diagnosed with two types of tumors - one being TN and the other HER2+ both in the same breast. Not the same as you, but different types. I'm told it's not too common but I'm still learning. I am getting targeted therapy for the HER2+. Hope you are doing well. Started TCH on August 26th.

Hi ladies

Here is my strange mixture. LEFT: 2cm and 9mm ER-/PR+ (2% weak) Her2-. grade2

RIGHT: 1cm and 9mm ER-/PR- Her2+ (strong 3+) grade3. I will be starting chemo around the 27 Oct and probably TCH.

So now I wonder if I am still considered triple negative or not?

I would think the Her2 positive would trump the triple negative.....

Peggy, I was only 'mildly' estrogen positive (11-25%) and took Arimidex for 5 years. As it was explained to me, it is like being a 'little bit pregnant'....it still 'counts'.....

ruthBru, did you have any negative side effects from the arimidex during those years?

Thanks for responding,

No bad SEs, I did really well. And with all the controversy over 5 or 10 years of anti-hormonals, it made it easy for me to decide that 5 years was enough.....
