Hello.  Has anyone had any experience with pseudo progression of their breast tumor early on during chemo with immunotherapy ?  MRI shows increased signal/enhancement to soft tissue (told due to inflammatory response) and fluid (told necrosis from tumor breakdown and blood from destabilized vasculature to tumor) and decreased signal/enhancement to actual tumor.  We have been told this is all good, but the overall size of the tumor is up and requires drainage of central liquid portion of tumor every 2 weeks (last amount of bloody drainage aspirated was 220cc!).  I cannot find much info on this type of response and am hoping that someone here has.
