My tumor was er neg/pr/neg. Diag.=DCIS. Cells noninvasive but comodo. Never had a HER-2 done. Surgeon says not done for this. Is this common? Should I have it done anyway; is it too late? Cells from surgery are banked at the hospital.

    My oncologist said that Her2 is always tested, wonder why surgeon didn't. My biopsy showed her 2 before I ever had surgery and then cells tested after mastectomy.
