Proliferation rate

I am wondering whether anyone here was told the proliferation rate, as measured by ki-67 test, for their tumors. I have not heard it mentioned for anal cancer. I have a second cancer and patients all seem to know the rate of proliferation for that cancer. Just wondering.

This has never been mentioned to me, nor have I ever seen it mentioned in any of the information I've read.

If you see reference to ki-67 in your records, that is the proliferation rate. It would be in a biopsy report. For me, it is in my surgical report for the second cancer.
