Prostrate Biopsy Negatives
Sampling error: Fine needle aspirate of lymph nodes are not ideal for ruling out abnormal findings. Especially, with lymphomas there may be areas within the ln that are not involved and sampling of these areas may be misleading.

If report reads: estrogen reactor weakly positive, progesterone negative, her2 negative &invasive ductal carcinoma. Is this a triple negative cancer?
MRI biopsy was done and showed DCIS. Histopathology showed invasive ductal with 2.5 mm microinvasion (grade 2). ER-PR negative, HER +ve (+3). My ques?
I'm not sure: of the question. It is not unusual for an image-guided needle biopsy DCIS to be 'upgraded' to an invasive cancer at surgery. The needle biopsy randomly samples small areas of the lesion, whereas following surgery the pathologist has the whole mass to work with. It is relatively common to have elements of DCIS and invasive components existing in different parts of the same tumor. ...Read more
