MPI score


Re: MPI score

Hi rushie

Thank you for posting.

It’s understandable you’re wanting to know what an MPI score means

To answer your question accurately I wonder if you could clarify that your surgery results mention Morphometric Prognostic Index (MPI) or as Shi suggests Nottingham Prognostic Index (NPI).

If you prefer, you are welcome to call our Helpline. Your call will be confidential, and the number is free from UK landlines and all mobile networks.

The number is 0808 800 6000, (Relay UK -prefix 18001).

If you would like a nurse to call you do complete this form. Ticking the box agreeing to a call back.

Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am - 4pm and 9am -1pm on Saturday. Out of hours you can leave a message and we will call you back when we next open.

Best wishes

Re: MPI score

Hi rushie

Eager as you must feel, PLEASE don’t Google it. I was fretting over the one thing my breast care nurse didn’t mention when, at the end of my treatment, I plucked up courage to find out what I didn’t want to know before. At 2am, I googled NPI. My anxiety shot through the roof!

Basically it’s an antiquated statistical tool they use when surgeon hands over to oncologist. Once you begin treatment, it becomes less relevant as each treatment changes the score - unless, like me, the bu****s find a new home. Then it feels like “I told you so”. 

Ask your breast care nurse, surgeon or oncologist. They will explain it IN CONTEXT which Google can’t do. All the best with whatever lies ahead. It’s all manageable, even by a wuss like me. Above all, it’s worth it.

Re: MPI score

Hi Rushdie, do you mean NPI score? There is so much lingo best thing to do would be ring the nurses on here or ring the breast nurse you have been assigned. Please keep off Dr Google even though we have all been guilty of doing it on here I’m sure. It only sends you into obit, so please do speak to a nurse and they will be able to answer your questions ❤️💕💕Shi xx
