HER 2 Borderline Equivocal

I had a HER 2 Breast Cancer and then a second Her 2 SISH test and luckily it was negative. However at the same time the Her 2 negative report states that is regarded as Group 4 Bordeline/Equivocal. Has any one had these results and/or had the test done again because it was borderline?

    Hello @Alcaye, that is a good question, you could speak with your breast care nurse or alternatively you can call our helpline on 1800 500 258 to speak with one of our cancer nurses.  All the best

    Hi, thanks Giovanna. I have been reluctant to ask Doctors too many question because they are busy people. It sounds like a good idea to speak to a breast nurse or a call a cancer nurse.

    Hi @Alcaye, the FISH test is done when the screening or first common test for HER2 is borderline or indecisive, and

     ...the result of the more expensive FISH test is taken usually as the final result. 

    Lots of love, Tinks xx
