Hi Guys, i am new here as my mother got detected with breast cancer 2 weeks back.
trying to understand the details of this disease.
She underwent MRM last week. Prior to that a whole body bone scan & ultrasound was performed which mentioned 'no definitive scan evidence of bone metastasis'. Biopsy report came today which stats she is triple negative and INVASIVE DUCT CARCINOMA, NOS, GRADE III,pSTAGE : pT2N0.
AXILLARY : 16 LYMPHNODES ISOLATED, ALL ARE FREE OF TUMOR. (0/16)
i have few very basic questions.
1) Since whole body scan was good and MRM was performed. Will still there be a need for chemo as i understand cancer didnt spread and whole breast which had the cancer was removed.
2) shall we get the biopsy done again at a different lab just to ensure results are consistent.
3) can some body refer based on personal experience, a great oncologist in Delhi. would love to get feedback.
