Barb, unfortunately it means the cancer has reached your sentinel node. So you'll most likely have to have chemo. (Unless "angiolymphatic invasion" says "no" or "negative" or "not seen" next to it...) Please read our Guide to Understanding Your Pathology Report for lots of helpful information about how to interpret what you're reading. Good luck - PJH
