    I would think you would need some type of surgery, weather it be a lumpectomy or mastectomy. Maybe they can tell through clean margins, that the biopsy got all of the cancer cells, and the chemo is being used as a precautionary measure? I'd you ask your oncologist why there would be no surgery?

    It sounds like you may not feel comfortable about your treatment???? I would get a second opinion if I were you. Having no surgery does sound a little strange.

    I'm having chemo before surgery and even if there is no evidence of disease after chemo I still HAVE to have surgery my oncologist said... I'd get another opinion.
