I am hoping someone out there can help me. I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in July. I had breast conservation surgery in September and am going through Chemotherapy right now. Three down, one to go. My radiation oncologist has asked me to think about going back in for surgery because he believes the margins aren't as clear as they should be. According to the pathology report, "There is invasive carcinoma at the cauterized edge of tissue. This could possibly be a crevic as there is not ink seen at that cauterized edge and the tumor grossly was 2 mm from the closest margin. Clinical correlation is recommended"
Thank you so much.
