Re: TN and advice on changes to hormone receptor status - advice please
I have been diagnosed with ER strongly positive breast cancer. When 18months later of initial diagnosis, liver mets found in scan I had a liver biopsy done. Tumour was still ER positive but weaker positive and still her2 and Pro negative. Hormonal treatment with Letrozole stopped and started on Capecitebine oral chemo. I think that 30% of tumours change hormonal receptors. Always more information of the disease could help for more targeted treatment.
Best of luck wwith your appointment and your treatment
TN and advice on changes to hormone receptor status - advice please
HI. I was DX with secondaries to lungs, bones & lymphs last July. have been on Taxel & Avastin which was working well but now markers are up so having scans this week & go from there. I have heard others talking about changes to hormone status in secondaries & just wanted to see if this is common. I have never been given a biopsy of my secondaries & will ask next ONC appt but wanted to go "armed" with examples just in case ONC is awkward????? - I like to have all the info at my fingertips.
