Jul 29, 2018 · Microinvasive breast cancer and positive senitel lympyh node in Breast Cancer

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.

I'm sorry to hear of your diagnoses @mmcleod1.  May I ask who recommended chemo? My medical oncologist recommended chemo pill after radiation. They were not able to find the receptors of my microinvasive tumors .

And I'm like you , I've not heard of microinvasion in anyone else . We must be super special lol ugh . And there is very little info available due to the small percent of women diagnosed with it.

2 weeks from my diagnoses to surgery . From what I understand, if I'm clear everywhere else, I'll have radiation and the chemo pill for 5 years with scans every 3 months . The anxiety of waiting on the scan results is a nightmare !! And yes the biopsy was horrible for me as well. I had the same thing happen. To be honest the bruising from the biopsy looked worse than the bruising from the mastectomy!!

No I had no sign of it invading my sentinal lymph nodes. What does your oncologist suggest for your surgical and treatment plan? I'm so sorry to hear of your diagnosis!! I will keep you n my thoughts and prayers .

Hi graceak10! I'm so confused as to what type . My dcis insitu was estrogen progesterone + . So i assume so is the microinvasive breast cancer. They ran more pathology on it and I'll find out July 11th if her2+ or -. He stated if it's not spread anywhere, I'll do radirion and take a chemo pill for 5yrs. There not much info on this type of cancer therefore I'm not sure which route is the best . So so frustrating !!!

I had bilateral mastectomy and removal of sentinal nodes due to dcis insitu however when pathology report came in they found another type of cancer …microinvasive breast cancer with one of two sentinel nodes positive. Has anyone else had this diagnoses ? There's not much available on it. I have went for the body scan to assure it has not spread . Still anxiously awaiting results .
