I have researched tnbc and have had all the tests MRI Core Biopsy I am scheduled for Lumpectomy with senital node removals on Tuesday, February 14th.   The Breast Surgeon uses a Margin probe which I believe will help reoccurrence. in the breast.. Will they do Chemo plus radiation.   I am a happy Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother. However, I still have a zest for life.

Margaret39: with the limited information in your post, I'm sure your doctors are trying to give you the best care. You should have more answers after your surgery. I don't know what a "margin-probe "is but I know the surgeons try to remove tissue around any cancer lump with a minimum of 1 centimeter, that is about 3/8 inch.

I'm sure you will have more answers from your doctors, as far as, chemotherapy and radiation,  if you don't feel you are getting informed, please talk to you doctor's nurse, express your anxiety and let us know how we can help...

Hi Margaret,

Congrats on being a great grandmother!  The Margin Probe is one of the newer technologies helping breast cancer surgery.
