I've just read a post & can't find it. I'm still not savvy on this site. My question is what is the  re accurence after 5 years, primary or secondary after 5 years? Does anyone have statistics?

    Mum’s oncologist had a link to a tool inputting many factors of her particular cancer type, receptors etc to give 10yr stats depending on what treatments were done in part or all. The only issue is the stats are a guide not a definite, everyone is different, but if you want the stats ask your oncologist about the stats specific to your age and cancer markers, they should have access.

    Thank you.  I have received no pathology reporst, no summary, just verbal information, which at the time, was bouncing off my skull, so didnt have time or brain power to ask questions.  Now I have a list of questions, but it wont be to my surgeon, but from my GP.  I was suppose to have an extended appointment with him and my partner last week, but, because their typist is away sick, they did not have any reports, so I have to wait another week, which is excrutiating, and I dont think its right, I have private health cover, but I reckon this sucks

    The pathology will change again when you have surgery then they will have all the information to determine next course of treatment 
    Take care

    You can ask for a copy of your pathology report but I think the most accurate report will be the post surgery pathology. I actually didn't have to ask for it as my surgeon gave it to me. He even highlighted the most relevant bits and talked me through it. Hope you get the same.

    Predict Breast

    The "Predict" tool can be useful.  @Cora the link is above.

    @Cora the underlined words "Predict Breast" is the link.  Click on that, and it will lead you to the website.  Hope that helps you. :)
