The scores are set according to cell dominance. It is unlikely that the score will change if positioning is different. It may very well be that a less agressive tumor close to the margin is less likely to recurr. I don't think any Doc is willing to guess at such the notion. A pathologist may suggest the chances are lessened but, an Oncologist will still play it safe and say nothing.
So far you're doing well :>) Modified Citrus Pectin...Worth a look see if one is into such alternatives.
Swim, I have been reading up on that Modified Citrus Pectin you mentioned the other day. There seems to be a good deal of positive information regarding its use and possible inhibiting of metastasis and it is a relatively inexpensive supplement. At first glance it does not seem to be readily available in Australian health food stores so I'm hoping that if I decide to add it to my diet (high probability) and bring it in from the US, the Australian Quarantine Service doesn't give me any grief.
