I had my pathology reports yesterday and the surgeon told me due to the size of the mass which is 7 mm and it has not gone to my lymph nodes that I will not be needing chemo and just only surgery. I am puzzled because it is triple negative. Did anyone experience this ? I have a second opinion tomorrow.

If it were me i would want it! I wanted to throw the whole kitchen sink at it. Mine was larger also so there was never a discussion. But if needed i would say get a second opinion!<3

It is really good that you got the more current BRCA testing, as your positive results can influence treatment. Well done seeking second opinions including MSKCC. Everything taken together (and I see the tumor size was upgraded), it makes sense to do chemo. Go for it, Calvin! Take your opportunity to blast this cancer. Wishing you well.
