I had left breast masectomy on Oct 13, lobular carcinoma, er and pr postitive, HR-2 Negative, 22 Negative lymph nodes,no blood vessel invasion seen, size: 5 cm, doing 4 cyles AC, to be followed by radiation and tamoxifan. I plan to also discuss this topic with my oncologist, but also interested in your viewpoint. In my limited research I have learned that lobular cancer has different metastases than ductal cancer. And while I was initially pleased to learn I had negative lymph node involvement I am now concerned that perhaps neg. lymph nodes are common for lobular type breast cancer. I have learned that lobular cancer often mestastases to "broad spectrum of abdominal sites". . . and perhaps gets there via blood rather than lymph nodes.
What is your opinion on this. I was considering requesting some type of imaging or scan of my abdominal area as check.
