Right breast cancer, no lymph node taken out. Had mastectomy, clear margins, 1.2 cm tumor, mitotic rate 1, grade 1, total score 5. Treatment recommend?
Watch: If mastectomy performed, no RT needed. The chance of nodal involvement appearing later is a possibility. It seems when tumor spreads to lymph nodes, the disease remains in the lymph node chain and will not metastasize to other organs such as lung, liver, or bone. When nodes are left to expand, they extend to level 3 nodes, then eventually impinge on axillary vein, a reason for resection. ...Read more
I have breast cancer tumor. Went from 3cm to 5 CM after biopsy but stable since. If outer part is liquid, can it be drained by needle prior to surgery?
Drainage unnecessary: The size of the tumor does not include any bleeding from the biopsy. Therefore, if it was 3 cm before the biopsy (&the biopsy was recent), the tumor is still 3cm. You need not worry about this fluid and may proceed with your definitive surgery. I hope all goes well. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Can estimate but. ..: The gail model which is available on the nci website is a good way to assess "relative" risk but will not tell you if someone is going to get breast cancer.
