Can anyone give me any info on the significance of the percent cancer and size referred to in the biopsy?
what does less than 5 percent infer?  All positive cores were listed as this.
In the original biopsy the only size reference was to the size (length) of the sample core which varied from 5MM to 15MM.
In the second opinion by MD Anderson there is a reference to less than 1.0 MM focus and one at 4.5MM focus.
