I was diagnosed with infiltrating mammary ductal carcinoma. My question is has anyone ever had an equivocal Her2?

    Your specimens should still be at the first path's lab. Good luck!

    Thanks to everyone for the responses and sorry there was such a delay. The results of my HER2 came back equivocal and was supposed to be sent for a FISH to get a definite understanding, I still don't know whether my HER2 is negative or positive because the FISH was never done, so needless to say I have since began treatment elsewhere, I went this past week to MD Anderson and consulted with a Medical Oncologist, I did another mammogram, ultrasound and because a 2nd mass was found they also did another biopsy. They did get my specimens from the other lab and will be doing what is necessary. I am scheduled in 2 weeks to see a surgical oncologist to determine the course of treatment. Thanks again..
