My sister was detected a tumour in her left breast size 1 cm x 3/4 cm - which was removed. Reports informed Invasive duct carcinoma
After that we had PET scan which gave the remark - NO EVIDENCE OF FDG AVID LESIONS TO SUGGEST METASTIC DISEASE.
One more test was done -
Estrogen Receptor - strongly positive in 80% of the tumour cells
Progesterone Receptor - strongly positive in 80% of the tumour cells
HER 2 - Score 1+ Result negative
Also undergone gland biopsy(lymph nodes) near the brest /underarms
Under severe tension what will be the further treatment - advising chemo and radiation - also one expert is informing only hormone therapy will be needed. Pl guide what will be suitable to avoid the recurrence & precaution. Can only hormone therapy be sufficient if lymph nodes biopsy comes negative
