My guess is that they said invasive and non-invasive. Most likely your tumor had traits of both, or they found changes taking place from non-invasive to invasive. From what I remember reading back in my days of dx, most tumor have traits of both. Perhaps someone who is more in the know will be able to chime in?

You may also want to look at a book by Dr. Susan Love. Some are not fans of her book, but I found it to be a great deal of info and a great resource. SHe has a chapter about the path report and you may find parts of it online if you Google her name. It should tell you more about the invasive/ non-invasive cells.

THe waiting is the hardest part, when you get through this, you'll be ready to conquer the world!

Lori is correct: they found invasive and non-invasive cells in the biopsy, which may have led the doctors to do the MRI because they suspect there is more than one tumor. Non-invasive cells are DCIS (ductal carcinoma in-situ). It is not uncommon to find DCIS along with invasive tumor. The MRI is more sensitive than the mammo or u/s. My cancer was not seen on either mammo or u/s, only on MRI. That's why they have to do an MRI guided biopsy: it's the only way to find the tumors! I had the MRI back in 2000 as part of the landmark MRI study for high risk breast cancer patients. When they located the tumors (I had 3) they marked them with titanium needles. Then they took another mammo to check if they could see the tumors with the needle markers. The tumors still didn't show on the mammo, only the needles! Thanks to that study, MRI is used routinely now. I guess I was one of the reasons to support MRI screening for high risk patients! The MRI will help your doctors determine the extent of your cancer and plan your treatment.
Good luck!

thank you.

you are correct, I had an appt with another doc (GI)., today went and got a copy of the pathology report since my breast doc., is on vacation. it said exactly that..invasive ductal carcinoma, drade I/III>
Low grade ductal carcinoma in situ cribriform type.
moderatley reaction for ER and strongly for PR E-cadherin is positive consistant with ductal morphology. her is pendingestrogen and proestrgen reseptors.they also placed the titanium clips in where the first lump is, and I am now scheduled for the mri biopsy on tuesday morning.
Although my GI refused to really discuss the pathology report with me...he said it would be unethical for him to discuss it since he is not my Breast/cancer doctor.
He did say that the Mri biopsy has been scheduled and everything is being done correctly ......It just seems like so Long,
I want it out....and it is so darn FRUSTRATING that I feel like I am like a sitting duck

But, thank goodness for all of you, or I would have truly lost my mind.

Truly feeling for you up here in the catskills.  Let us know when and where and we'll get the PCE up there.  ladies, tavish, want to tell her?
