I too had lv invasion. I also had lymph node involvment, large 4.5cm tumour. Nobody told me I asked after I had read about it somewhere. I am 8 years down the line now. Also her2. Good luck and try not to worry too much. Eileen
i have never googled about it..i like you found out myself as the oncoligist never mentioned it..i was 3yrs down the line when i found it it freaked me out a little.the oncol.shrugged his shoulders when i mentioned it saying it doesnt really concern us..you have had chemo radio to get any stray cells if they had escaped...i have know idea why they dont mention it to us??they only mention nodes how many are involved if any at all..but not lvi.x
I am newbie to this site. Your thread caught my sight. I have found out on my own investigation that i have Lymphovascular Invasion too, i have read my histology report( nobody has explained any of it to me ) i am very worried about it, it sounds serious doesn't it ?
Have you googled about it?
also my report read lympovascular present...never really asked what that really meant..i know it means i had it but to what extent i dont know,x
dont think i will be much help but i had lymphovascular invation 4+yrs ago but clear nodes..i also did not get clear margins so had a second op to get clear margins..my oncoligist never mention lvi it was sometime later when i got a copy of the lab reports via my docs i was in great shock as i didntnt even know i had lvi i hadnt been told!when i next saw my oncoligist he explained they wasnt really concerned with lvi,he explained it meant the tumour had its own blood supply and 'maybe' cells had started to escape..but added that was why i had chemo to blast any cells if they had managed to escape.x
