I received the particulars of the Biopsy report EXCEPT for the prognostic marker studies. Here are the particulars:
“Well-differentiated infiltrating mammary carcinoma with focal tubular features.”
Researching this at Johns Hopkins, I found the following:
“well-differentiated” means this is not an aggressive cancer – good news!
“infiltrating mammary carcinoma” means even though it is not aggressive, there’s always a possibility that it could spread. BUT, I am feeling lucky and know that it won’t!
“focal tubular features” is a particular type of the well-differentiated aspect with a good prognosis.
This is good news!!
Tomorrow, I will find out the prognostic markers and what they mean and then Wednesday, will see the Oncologist who will explain this in more depth to me.
