Re:The waitng room!!! - Wednesday, July 21, 2010 10:56 AM
Hello, I am in the waiting room. I have been dx w/ invasive ductal carcinoma. I have my pathology report and go see the surgeon tomorrow. Wish I could understand the report. I have 2 lumps involved that are multiple cylindrical fragments. 1 is in the 2:00 position and the other in the armpit. the one in the armpit has no er+ or pr+ and the one in the breast is 100% er+ and 1% pr+. Her2 pending. Just seems weird that they are different! They are both grade 2. The one in the armpit says it ithard to tell if it is lymph node metastasis or breast tumor w/stromal reaction and also says it has a background od lymphoid stroma. What is lymphoid stroma? And if it is mestasis does that mean it has spread only to the lymph nodes?
Hope someone can help answer these ?'s  thank-you, Karen

Hi Kara,

I cant answer all your questions, but can tell you that sometimes it happens we can have two different types of breastcancer, which may explain why one of the tumour's is hormone pos and the other neg but your onc can answer this better for you.
Many people have positive nodes too, I had three, once this is seen you undergo a few scans to ensure it has'nt gone elsewhere and thankfully in the majority of cases, it has'nt.   I've known ladies with clear nodes that did'nt do well, and some with many positive nodes that did, we're all different so remember that:)

I'm not sure what lymphoid stroma means, I've looked it up but the info is not clear or defining so again, it's best to have your onc explain about this. 

A good surgeon or onc will go through your path report with you and explain everything in detail that we can understand so do ask for this.   In the meantime I'm so sorry you're waiting but keeping everything crossed for you and hope you'll keep us posted:)

Hi Kara,
Welcome to Komen and the waiting room and am  sorry you have to be here at all.
I have heard of having mixed tumors in the same breast, but don't know about the diagnosis specifics or "multiple cylindrical fragments"  Tricia gave good advice to have the surgeon explain the pathology, line by line.  Don't leave until you understand everything and have all your questions answered .Good luck and keep us posted
