I had my biopsy done 12/23 and today the surgeon called. Apparently the pathologist has read the tissue as cancer in situ(encapsulated of sorts , not invasive) but she vehemently disagrees. She took a large biopsy but under it was a nodule she believes has invaded the muscle (she didnt take the nodule as she thought she had enough tissue and wanted to save the muscle), she believes based on her clinical knowledge I have invasive cancer. She says with the current pathology I would not likely be accepted by an oncologist and would there fore not receive the radiation and chemo she believes I need. She says she needs more tissue for the pathologist and believes that I need to undergo another biopsy, if she takes the muscle she says I will leak stool.
