Hi diagnosed last year with a primary breast cancer aggressive Grade 3 in two nodes. I wondered if anyone had long-term survivor stories. I'm terrified of secondary and have read lots of posts of survival but they tend to be stage 3 but grade 1 or maybe 2. Is there anyone with a Grade 3 in nodes with a positive story. Thanks ahead.

Thanks Spookiesmom for the encouraging story.

I was reviewing another thread in stage IV, and it seems that most of them were grade 3 who eventually developed to stage IV. I guess it is true that grade 3 tumor tends to be more aggressive and likely to spread. :(

Hope more long term grade 3 survivors will chime in. Bumping up the thread.

Grade 3, also 2 nodes..not so much long term, 2.5 years out, but also great to see how many others. Looking at the board seems like ER+, could counterbalance the grade 3 for better survival.

Thanks Sophiemara for your answer. Yes I agree about Er Status though sometimes worry as I was a 6 on the Allred Score and hope this is high enough for a good response.

Grade 3 is the most aggressive in both Er+ and Er-. Most important to find it early altho a tumour's characteristics can make a grade 1 into a grade 4 as well. I am 7 years out for the first and 5 years for the second. The second is why I am on anti-hormonals for 10 years,
