Hi I am new to the site and have a question. I had a bilateral mastectomy on September 21st due to IDC in left breast, stage 1, grade 1, 1.5 cm and lymph nodes clear. Currently have tissue expanders(no fills yet) and started Tamoxifen. My breast surgeon is monitoring the Tamoxifen and has not referred me to an oncologist. Is that typical for early stage and low grade BC? My mammoprint and other test came back as low risk so no chemo is needed. Breast surgeon said an oncologist is not needed due to chemo not being needed. Not sure if I believe it. Would love to hear your thoughts.
