infiltrating primary carcinoma diagnosis

Hi My wife aged 74 has been diagnosed as having breast cancer in the left breast and markedly enlarged left axillary lymph nodes reaching up to 5cm in greatest diameter. The MRI report says in part that there is an extensive dense band of asymmetrical tissue lying superficial to the (breast implant done 25 years ago) There was intense rapid enhancement of this tissue with typically malignant time intensity curves extending over 7cm in a transverse plane up to 1cm in depth. This tissue is contiguous with the dermal surface which is markedly thickened, and there is similar intense abnormal enhan

phatology report infiltrating carcinoma

Oh, I am so so sorry.  I am sure you are feeling very frightened and confused.  I'm new to this whole thing and I expect that I will be an expert soon----  so some of the other ladies here will be better able to offer you advice. I offer you support and caring.  Please know that I will say prayers for you.  My sister just said something to me when we were discussing my biopsy (which I don't have the results yet) and she commented that breast cancer treatment has really come so far and can be so treatable.  I don't know what comfort this will give me if I get a report of malignant carcinoma.  But it is the truth.  Hold onto that and your faith.   Again, I am so sorry for you and will keep you in my thought and prayers.

Invasive lobular carcinoma of the breast

Hi Bel, I had invasive lobular carcinoma as well. Not too many of us on these boards with this type of cancer. I know you don't really want to do surgeries but if your overall health is good you should consider it. This type of cancer does have bilateral tendencies so if you're going to move forward I'd get them both done at the same time. If you have not had an MRI I would suggest doing so before having any surgery. That will pinpoint everything they see and may offer more information. It did for me. It took my 1.5 cm mass and proved it was really 10 cm. Our type of cancer tends to grow very quickly. Yours is already into your chest wall muscle and for me, when I had my mastectomies, they had to remove most of my chest wall muscle because they were trying to get clear margins. They do also need to at minimum do a sentinal node biopsy during your surgery. This can all be done at once. I had one night in the hospital with my mastectomy. Really that was all that was needed. Most women don't even do that much, they leave a few hours later. The numbers T1-T4 describe the size and/or how much the cancer has grown into the breast tissue. The higher the T number, the larger the tumor and/or the more it may have grown into the breast tissue. As for hormone therapy, they will most likely put you on an AI afterwards to stop/block estrogen from being produced in your body. Even though you are menopausal it's still produced by the adrenals and the fat in our bodies. Best wishes and let us know how you're doing.

Breast cancer reoccurrence

Hi. This is by itself already a breast cancer recurrence and every effort should be made to further lessen the chance of it coming back after this second surgery.  The present treatment that your oncologist is recommending is reasonable and sound, as this would eradicate microscopic cancers circulating in the body called 'micrometastases'.  This would lessen the chance of metastasis and/or recurrence.   I hope your chemotherapy will be as uneventful as possible.  Regards.

Papillary carcinoma, high nuclear grade

Hi, The report that you mention mentions that you have breast cancer - papillary type. Nx - no lymph node metastasis. Mx - no evidence of distant metastasis. TIS - tumor in situ - that is localised tumor. Hope this clears out your doubts. Do let us know if you have any questions. Hope this helps. Good luck.

prognosis from tumor size and lymphnode involvement

Hi Anil, First of all, I'm sorry for your sister's diagnosis.  It is such a difficult time for her and your whole family.   Hopefully, she is being cared for in a medical center where the physicians work together as a team and meet to come up with a comprehensive plan.  They should discuss with her a comprehensive plan.  Knowing what I've learned from the last year of my own cancer treatment, I believe given what you've told me, that she would benefit from both chemotherapy and radiation.   I think probably your sister's best option is to get a second and even third opinion until she feels comfortable with her plan -- that she believes it gives her her best chance for a long healthy life. Please feel free to keep in contact with us and ask whatever questions you need to.  I hope we can be of help to your sister and your whole family. Warmly, Chris Healingwell62 Breast Cancer 1 & 2 Community Leader

New diagnosis of lobular carcinoma in situ

It is true that even though LCIS does include the word "carcinoma" it is not a true cancer. As you know it does increase your risk of developing BC in the future. As a rule the treatment is extra surveilance in the future and also Tamoxifen is sometimes prescribed to lessen the risk. Some, and this is rather drastic, choose to have a Mastectomy but this is known to reduce the risk. You might consider a consult with an Oncologist for an opinion in your particular circumstances since you have other risk factors as well. I don't think you should feel "lacking" in knowledge here; when it's YOU it's a different thing altogether !!Write down whatever comes to mind, no matter how minor it seems ... the only foolish question is the one that goes unanswered !!

is chemo needed

Hi there. Not only does she needs chemotherapy, but I believe that she needs another operation to clear up the margins.  A positive margin is an adverse prognostic feature that can mean the increased likelihood of recurrence.  An operation can be another lumpectomy, or a mastectomy altogether.  These options should be discussed with the surgeon.  The large size of the primary tumor warrants adjuvant chemotherapy.  If the tumor is also tested for ER and PR and is found to be positive, she may need hormonal treatment as well.  Radiation can also be given due to the size of the primary lesion.  All of these treatments are all directed on lessening the chances or tumor recurrence or spread. I suggest you discuss all of these options with her oncologist. I hope her treatment will be uneventful. Regards and God bless.

IDC

Hi. If the breast tissue was biopsied and the pathology report showed infiltrating ductal carcinoma, the breast is the primary site of the disease.  However, if another organ (other than breast) was biopsied and it turned out to be infiltrating ductal carcinoma, then that organ is a metastatic site from a primary breast cancer.   Take care.

Mrs M. Oufnac

Hi, There might be a tiny increased "risk" of cancer associated with sclerosing adenosis, but not much. Apocrine metaplasia is often seen in Fibrocystic Breast Condition. Epithelial Hyperplasia means that the cells from the lining of a structure are present in numbers more than would be normally expected. With Atypical ductal hyperplasia  there is no cancer involved ,but it does increase the risk of developing breast cancer in the future. I believe that all the terms in your report do not indicate cancer,but mainly "risk" conditions. Your upcoming surgical biopsy is the best approach to remove the abnormal area to eliminate these risks factors. Wishing you all the best and BENIGN results!
