I have learned that my cancer, now in recurrence, is strongly estrogen receptive, and has tested medium positive for HER2. Does anyone else have this combination?
My oncologist has only treated 6 women with Herceptin for HER2, and none who have both characteristics. He plans to treat me with a new estrogen blocking drug after chemotherapy, but seems uncertain at what stage to introduce Herceptin for the HER2. I would be grateful for any information or pointers you can give me. Thanks for reading, PAT
