dear friends

Er+/PR+/her-ve/ki67-12%

Tumor size 8cms. Spread to 3 lymph nodes. One doctor said before surgery 4 months hormone therapy is the best start. Another doctor said chemotherapy is best start. Can someone please guide.


I read that for chemotherapy to work ki67 must be 50%+ and her2 must be positive.


Thanks
