Share the histopath report which includes tumor size, grade and lymphnodes involved. She may be treated with hormone therapy alone if all factors are favorable in histopathology.

Prognosis for stage I is good provided treatment started on time. 5 year survival is around 95%. Treatment involve surgery: either Mastectomy or Breast conservation surgery, followed by Adjuvant chemotherapy and / or radiation therapy depending upon Final histopathology report. Adjuvant Hormone therapy is given depending upon ER / PR. You can find more information on www.oncosurgeon.in
