PT3, PN1a. Low grade well differentiated to moderately differentiated. Perineural invasion. 1 of 8 lymph nodes. 2.6 cm. Lymph vascular invastion indeterminate. So the surgeon said this is IIIA. I see the oncologist in a few weeks. After doing some reading this looks to me like it is IIIB?
Anyway I plugged all the info into Sloan Kettering Prognosis calculator. Had to run it two ways with well differntiated and moderately. I am 70 years old. The calculator when I selected taking chemo after surgery had less of a survival rate than when I selected not taking chemo. This is confusing. Does the calculator figure the chemo will kill me off?
