First of all, I would like to really appreciate the work everyone is putting around here. It is truly impressive and encouraging for many others. Thanks
Recently 2 weeks back, my mom Age 57, was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. She was feeling a lump in her right breast and decided to get a mammogram done and that is when we came to know about cancer.
She had a mammogram done in Dec 2015 which did not show any signs of cancer.
As soon as we came to know, we have got all the remaining tests done to confirm the malignancy. Tumour was in right breast measuring 2.5 * 2.0 * 1.0 cm.
She has also done Axillary node dissection and pathology report showed "Metastatic deposits of carcinoma in 1/16 axillary nodes. Perinodal spread not seen". Lymphovascular emobli : Identified.
Pet scan did not show anything other than a tumour in the right breast.
We are awaiting her test results for ER/PR/HR/Her2 in a few days.
Her Pathological stage is at T2N1Mx. She is given a histological grade of 2. MBR score 6 of 9.
I would like to know if there are others who are fighting the same battle like my mom and to get to know the treatment they have been receiving and to be aware of things we are going to face in coming days.
What are her chances of coming out this completely? Can we opt for treatment elsewhere outside India where she will have good chances?
I understand each patient prognosis is different and be unique, It's just reassuring to know that we are not alone in the battle.
She is currently being treated at Omega Hospitals , hyderabad.
