Hormone therapy

Hi I was diagnosed with hi grade dcis and pagets. I had a masectomy on 28th April. I’m just reading my pathology report and it says no further treatment required, which is fab. But it also says outer quadrant biopsy negative oestrogen and progesterone receptors but core biopsy was positive. I’m confused as one set of results come back positive does this mean I should be on a hormone therapy? Any advice would be great x
