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-

Hi, gardengurl. That is good news; it is always reassuring to get the first MRI/mammo over.

I couldn't take the AIs either. I had terrible hot flushes leading to disturbed sleep, joint pain and (worst of all and for the first time) depression. I started on tamoxifen instead and had almost no side effects. I was on it for 6 years and would happily have continued but for the discovery of a benign uterine polyp, probably caused by tamoxifen.

Tubular is low risk but not no risk and I decided to give tamoxifen a go, knowing I could stop any time it got too difficult. I'm glad I did. I'm nearly 7 years out now and doing well'. The very best of luck to you.

Hi gardengirl:

After doing exhaustive research on tubular, I decided on having a lumpectomy only & opted out of taking all drugs. Four years & doing fine!
