Need Oncotype-Dx. While your prognosis is excellent, we know that some women with your stage may benefit from traditional chemotherapy in addition to an aromatase inhibitor.

Anyone have stage 1 breast cancer with her2/neu positive er/pr negative?

Not Uncommon. In general, women w/stage i breast cancer have an excellent prognosis; however, this particular "mix" of receptors can be more aggressive. If the tumor is <0.6cm (t1a), no additional rx is recommended. If the tumor is >1cm (t1c), adjuvant chemo w/herceptin is recommended. For t1b tumors (0.6-1cm), chemotherapy should be considered, weighing in other factors such as pt age and health. Read more...
