Microinvasive breast cancer and positive senitel lympyh node
Hi @jusme, any update on next steps? The type of breast cancer and treatment plan?
@graceak10 Did you decide to also do radiation in addition to chemo?

The medical oncologist was unable to determine the receptor type of the microinvasive cancer therefore he is assuming it's the same type of cancer as dcis since it was in its background . Radiation oncologist is sending me to Vanderbilt for a 2nd opinion on radiation. He doesn't think I need it but I'm uncomfortable with that. So Monday i see 2 radiation oncologist at Vanderbilt and hope I have some answers and a treatment plan by midweek.
good for you for advocating for yourself. I love this post. If you feel something isn't right or don't feel comfortable with the plan a recommends or you want a second opinion- by all means- do it. good job!
