Borderline call!: Your breast tumor is quite small, so it has >90% odds that it can be safely treated with surgery, without any chemotherapy required. You may ask your doctor for treating you with tamoxifen which is a antihormone type of medication, commonly used as the treatment for tumors that are ER positive. Good luck
