Oncotype test


Re: Oncotype test

Hello Pommy8 

Thanks for your question asking about breast cancer recurrence following a low Oncotype Dx score. 

As this test looks at groups of genes found in breast cancer tissue it is very reliable.

Oncotype test

I had the oncotype test im 58 thankfully low score so no chemo.

But radiation and hormone tablet for 5 years.

Had pain in my bad breast found out cyst.
