Appropriate: That is a young age to be diagnosed with breast cancer. Fortunately, it was diagnosed and is ER+ which makes it easier to treat. The prescribed treatment sounds appropriate. I would also want to know BRCA I and II status and family history to see if a double mastectomy is warranted and if ovarian cancer is also a risk.
