I am a 25 year old girl who just diagnosed with invasive carcinoma with a tubular, low grade ductal carcinoma appearance. This result came in from a breast excision biopsy I had around two weeks ago. The original pathology report from my core needle biopsy for a fibroadenoma appeared to be only ADH but after the excision biopsy they found it to be IDC with unclear margins apparently. the pathology report states the carcinoma to be low grade, 0.3cm in size(which I understand is very small)
My surgeon suggested a second surgery(lumpectomy) to get a clear margin and also sentinel node biopsy. I have no family members who had any associations with breast cancer and my BRCA1 and 2 results are negative.
I am still in shock by all this and would like any thoughts/feed from people who have been diagnosed with IDC with tubular appearance. What are the treatments you had for this? I am still young and would want to have children in the future, I am worried about taking hormonal therapy as it may have an affect on pregnancy.
Any thoughts and feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
