Any early (less than 5yrs) local recurrence of early stage IDC?
I was recently diagnosed, at 70 yrs, with a local recurrence (also hormone dependent) of my BC (2.5 yrs ago: ER+, PR+, Her -; 2cm with 2 smaller nodes) (IDC) that first occurred 2.5 yrs ago, had lumpectomy back then followed by radiation for 3 wks. I did not take the AI due to feared SEs (already borderline osteo). My Oncotype was considered low ('10') and I've been told by the oncotype people that the score is in relation to distant recurrence. For this recurrence in same spot (and into skin layers) I just underwent a mastectomy 1 week ago and axillary dissection.
I don't come across many instances on this site of local recurrences similar to mine and in my timeframe. Is this really unusual? (After my radiotherapy, I was told chances were only 5% of recurrence.) And is there a relation with distant recurrences later on?
