Grade 2 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma
I have stage 1, grade 2 invasive ductal carcinoma. How long do I have before this goes to stage 2?
Doesnt work that way: It is common, but not right, to think of cancer stages (1, 2, 3, 4) as a progression 1->2->3->4. However, the more we learn about cancer the more we learn that some cancers may begin as stage III or IV - they can spread from the very beginning. In your case, stage 1 breast cancer, if completely removed, may never come back. There is no set time period in which we expect it to become stage 2. ...Read more

Grade 1 invasive ductal carcinoma, 2 spots, family history, 47 years of age, small breasts. should I get double mastectomy?
It is your choice: Breast cancer can be adequately treated with a lumpectomy in most cases. So a mastectomy is not really necessary. But based on your breast size, your doctor can guide you best. Many women opt for reconstructive surgery at the same time as removal of your breast cancer. ...Read more
Depends: Not all breast cancers are the same and many other factors help to predict better or poorer outcomes such as tumor grade, # of positive lymph nodes, estrogen receptor status, her2neu status, etc. A score called oncotype DX based on genetic profiling of the cancer helps define prognosis also and tailor decisions as to the best and most beneficial treatment to use. ...Read more

It is extremely unlikely to be related to your recent diagnosis. You may be experiencing anxiety with panic attack ...Read more

My wife was just diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma stage 2 breast cancer. What can you tell me about this kind of cancer?
Palpable lesion: Stage II breast cancer indicates a slightly more advanced form of breast cancer. The cancer cells have spread beyond the original location and into the surrounding breast tissue, and the tumor is larger than in stage I disease. However, stage II means the cancer has not spread to a distant part of the body. At resection the lymph nodes were neg and treatment standard depending on hormone status. ...Read more
