Survivor since 2012
I had never heard of an oncotype until I had my second breast cancer last year. Mine was very high, and chemo was necessary. On the other hand, a friend who is having radiation right now had a lower oncotype and does not need chemo.
I'm not worried. I had the recommended treatment, I've had a bilateral mastectomy and have had my ovaries removed, and I'm on post-cancer medication (Aromasin) to prevent any remaining hormones (I can't imagine there are any!) from "binding" to any little buggers who may have survived chemo.
Try not to jump to conclusions. Your doctors will make the best decision for you whatever your oncotype. Best of luck to you!
