Terra, unfortunately this is getting into territory that's just too technical and involved for us to answer here. We're breast cancer survivors; seasoned survivors, for sure, but we have no medical training other than the reading we do to help us answer these questions, and the experience we've had as patients ourselves. I don't feel confident answering questions about your specific surgery; what may or may not have been the result, and whether this is "good" or "bad." So, best for you to either contact your surgeon (often a surgeon's nurses are the most accessible place to start); or to simply wait for the biopsy results. I know waiting is hard, so try to keep yourself busy and focused on something besides the frustration of waiting, OK? Best of luck to you - I hope you get good results. PJH
