My daughter has been told that, in addition to a lump in her breast, there is also a duct involved. What does this mean for her prognosis?

Of all breast cancers. There are so many other things to ask for a prognosis , such as stage, receptor status, erc. When they finish all the testing you'll have all The details you need about her particular type of cancer and how to beat it! I'll be thinking of her and keep the faith!

    They often start in ducts. Mine did, but I never knew until it broke out and found the lump. Only a mammogram would have shown it but I was 31, so why would I be getting a mammogram? There is more detail they seem to be leaving out, like what stage, if it is negative or positive of the 3 receptors. Definitely ask about that and stage. Best of luck
