Has anyone had a diagnosis of metaplastic carcinoma BC?  I don't find much info on it and understand it's kind of unusual.  Any info will help--was diagnosed in July 09, had a lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy and then began chemo this month.

hi I was told last week that I had malignant phyllodes by core biopsy- I took my slides to john Hopkins and they think the slides were misread and they think it's metaplastic spindle cell - I had a mastectomey with sentinal node biopsy - 7 nodes in all we're taken.   I have a 4 and 7 year old - and I am very scared. What treatment did you get? 

Thank you kelly

Hi Cookies, I just noticed that you had posted here but the original poster hasn't returned here since 2009, so this isn't an active thread.
