Breast Cancer

Does ER8/8 and PR8/8 means positive ER/PR or negative ER/PR
4880072_tn?1364749626
Hi there

Usually, pathology reports simply state  if the carcinoma is positive or negative (much easier to read!)

However, Sometimes a score (usually out of 8) is used to indicate the
average amount of hormone receptors per cancer cell and the
proportion of cells with receptors.

Your results are 8/8.so yes, definitely positive

Hope this helps
