I have breast cancer-Her 2 positive, progesterone & estrogen positive. On my health record it shows I have breast cancer (HCC). What does HCC mean?

In brief: IHC?

Does it say IHC? Immunohistochemistry.
Immunohistochemistry is an array of stains used to confirm a specific type of cancer. They probably used this to tell if estrogen and progesterone positive. Hope this helps.
