In the days following lumpectomy, you’ll receive a pathology report. This report will explain the characteristics of the breast cancer. The size of the cancer as well as other diagnostic factors, such as tumor margins and hormone receptor status, will help you and your doctor to decide on a treatment plan that’s appropriate for you. Learn more about the factors that determine your treatment in Your Diagnosis.
