Hi All,

I’m waiting to talk to my MO but they aren’t able to see me today. In te meantime, I am wondering if anyone knows what my report could mean. I just had a new cancerous tumour just over a month after my mastectomy. My original diagnosis was 3.8 cm tumour, grade 3, hormone receptor positive, HR 2-, invasive ductal carcinoma. From the pathology report on my new lump it says the final diagnosis is “invasive high-grade adenocarcinoma” and “in the present specimen feautures of ductal carcinoma in situ are not evident.” Does anyone know how to interpret this? Does this sound like a new cancer or is it still IDC

adenocarcinoma is an umbrella term. It includes IDC, ILC and a bunch of other cancer.

Here's a page on breast adenocarcinomas (ignore the silly animaltions - it's a reputable Cdn site run by a breast radiologist) https://breast-cancer.ca/adeno-carc/

The path report says no DCIS. I would guess that that adenocarcinoma is going to be IDC but as always your dr is the final interpreter....
