Hello! Was wondering when is the oncotype dx done. It was not part of the pathology report results after surgery, and when I asked my surgeon, she said it is not necessary since I had 3 positive nodes, I will just go to chemotherapy. Can I insist on having it done and getting the score? How does it work in the system of things..
Here is some information on the eligibility for the Oncotype DX test: https://www.oncotypeiq.com/en-CA/breast-cancer/patients-and-caregivers/stage-i-iiia-invasive/eligibility-and-testing
Runner Girl Thank you for your response to Twater question about Oncotype testing. I knew I did not qualify but did not know the specifics on why. I presumed it was because I started with chemo but I see there were other considerations.
I was able to get next generation testing which is an extensive pathology report on the cancer removed. The report has been helpful but took 3 weeks and thousands of dollars out of my pocket.
