I am a 53 year old female with large dense breasts. I had a partial masectomy on Jan. 17, 2018 to remove a 2 cm x 5 cm ductal carcinoma. It was determined to be stage 2a, grade 3, estrogen positive, progesterone positive, Her2 negative. Lymph nodes we’re negative. Still waiting on the ONCO results.
I requested a total masectomy due to my dense breast tissue but the surgeon refused. I see the Oncologist on Tuesday and Radiologist on Thursday of this first week in February.
Do you have any recommendations before I have my appointments this week?
Thank you!

I’d get another surgeon.
