    Barbara's right. You treatment depends on so many factors. Cancer stage, grade of tumor, oncotype, er/pr status, HER2 status, BRACA,. I recommend gathering up all your test results and read & learn everything you can about your type of breast cancer & what your options are. That way you will feel more empowered and able to make a more informed decision concerning treatment.

      Hi Olga,
      Sorry, just saw this. I was diagnosed with Invasive Lobular Carcinoma, Stage 1 as well. That was on Oct. 24. Lumpectomy on Nov 7, followed by 6wks of radiation. Now on Tomoxifin. I had clear margins and sentinal node was clear. I am doing great and hope that you are too!

    It depends on your tumor makeup. I had stage 1, no lymph nodes and clear margins. But, because I was a grade 3 tumor, I had a lumpectomy, am receiving 12 rounds of Abraxane and Carboplatin over 12 weeks to be followed up by 7 weeks of radiation. I would recommend talking to your dr about the Oncotype DX test. This will do an in-depth look at your tumor to see if you would benefit from chemo. Best of luck.

    Hi Olga, We are a rare breed! I had infiltrating lobular carcinoma. Stage 1, grade 1. I had a lumpectomy. My margins were clear and so was my sentinal lobe. I had six weeks of radiation therapy and I just finished my first month on Tamoxifin. From what I understand, bc in the lobes is not as common as that found in the ducts. So far, I feel blessed. My recovery from surgery went well and radiation just wore me out a little. Starting to feel a few side effects from tamoxifen, but if it is beneficial to take it, I will suffer through the side effects! Good luck to you and Nancy! Make your list of questions for the surgeon, Radiation Oncologist, Oncologist, Gynocoloist...and anyone else you can think of! Keep in touch and I will be thinking of you both!
