Had biopsy 11-9

Met with surgeon this past Wednesday These are the words he underlined and talked about in path report

INVASIVE HIGH GRADE DUCTAL CARCINOMA (only thing discussed or mentioned)

He did not address the rest which read WITH FOCAL METAPLASTIC. SPINDLE CELL FEATURES

NO INTRAVASCULAR OR PERINURAL INVASION IDENTIIFED

COMMENT AT END OF REPORT

tHIS LESION REPRESENTS AN UNUSUAL FORM OF HIGH GRADEINFILTRATING CARCINOMA IN WHICH THERE ARE SUFFICIENT SPINSLE CELSTO WARRANT A DIAGNOSIS OF FOCAL METAPLASTIC FEATURES

So obviously after reading whole report at home and researching on internet am confused and terrified!

Called nurse coordinator this am with these questions and she was to consult with Dr and call me.

Anyone here with similar experience or helpful knowledge?

Hi, Sherry

I'm sorry I have not heard of a lot of those terms as I am new to cancer myself. From my own experience, every time I saw a doctor, I would get a LITTLE information, plus appointments for another test or two, and/or a referral to see another doctor, then I'd come home and do research. Each doctor visit and test builds up an information pile. It does seem like your doctor should have gone over the report more fully with you when you were there! Try not to stress too much yet. You're on a new path and you don't know where it will lead, but there is SO much that can be done for cancer patients these days that the path will almost surely have a happy ending.

Best of luck, and try to keep positive.
Exqualls, diagnosed 8/17/16, Stage 2B, ER+ PR+, HER2- invasive ductal carcinoma, with one lymph node involved. Ki-67 48%, clean margins, but only by one millimeter. Double mastectomy 9/28. Started chemo 11/7.
