Anyone out there also diagnosed with tubular carcinoma?  I know it is a rare kind, rarely spreads, is highly estrogen positive and has a good prognosis.  If you have tubular carcinoma, I am wondering about your treatment.  I had lumpectomy, radiation, and tamoxifen.  I am curious to know if all of this treatment is necessary for this kind of breast cancer- tubular, stage 1, grade 1, 0 lymph nodes.

 Thanks, I look forward to learning more about tubular carcinoma related to treatment plan. 

Dx 12/7/2006, <1cm, Stage IB, Grade 1, 0/4 nodes, ER+/PR+, HER2-

I fell good, pretty much all normal on my side.

I cant wait to get over it in a way, and hope that life will go back to normal, but on the other way i am a bit anxious to see the pathology of the tissue and make sure there is nothing else hiding out of sight!

I am reading as much as i can and i understand that each and every case is different. As you know, the more we learn the more questions we have and the more we expose our mind to think of the possibilities out there. My ER+ PR+ are very high > 99 and I am not sure how that will affect the future for me. For now, i choose just to inform myself and take one step at a time. Once this step is completed will discuss next steps with the MO and decide what's best.

How is the hormonal therapy going on for you?

You sound as if you have your head in a good place...everything you say is eminently sensible. You are right in thinking life will get back to normal, sooner than you think. The diagnosis can sometimes prompt some of us to take decisions that we would otherwise have kept putting off which actually mean life is better...that was true in my case. The worst thing is the anxiety about recurrence but that lessens as time passes. I totally understand about waiting for the pathology report..my phone sat on my desk like a hand grenade when I was waiting for my results.

I tried to take aromatose inhibitors but couldn't..I had horrible night seats, joint pain and, worst of all, depression. I switched to tamoxifen which i have been on for 2 1/2 years with minimal side effects.

I highly recommend exercise. It helps with side effects, reduces recurrence and really improves mood. It doesn't have to be drastic...brisk walking is grand.

Is your operation over now? I hope everything went well. Let us know how you are. X

Hello Applejuice,

Hope you're recovering well!. Just wanted to mention that if I'm correct, I don't think that the fact that your ER+ & PR+ numbers are high is a negative--just tells you that tumor is receptive to hormones, which is usually a plus because it may be easier to treat with hormone blocking drugs.

I just want to point out that the article was written in 1981...so it is around 38 years old. I believe this article is more in line with what is recommended currently.

I'm atrocious at links but from time to time I google "pubmed" and search "tubular breast cancer 2019" (or 2018). I never read anything over about 10 years old. Are you a stats person? I am. The articles are all very reassuring. Have you got your pathology results back? How are you feeling now?
