Node negative but one isolated cell!!

Just wondered if anytine has had sentinel node biopsy, two nodes clear but one isolated cell! If so did u then need auxiliary clearance? X

Hi Christina sorry to hear your SNB revealed some issues.  I think treatment from here will totally depend on exactly what they found.  Some have ANC, but others just radiotherapy.  There is recent research that the latter is just as effective in certain circumstances. One discuss with your doc I guess. All the best xx

hi i had the same &with one isolated cell no i didnot need total clearance however as i had invasive cancer in left breast &those nodes were clear the bisospy in rt breast showed that i had ductal cell carcinoma &thats where i had the isolated cell plus both my breasts were full of precancerous cells so i had to have a double mastectomy
