I am sorry for my repeated posts and so grateful to all who have chimed in prior! I have a little more information now from viewing the core needle biopsy and am hoping you can help me stop panicking over some questions. 

1) Tumor size is listed as 6mm on the needle biopsy report (done w 8 gauge vacuum). Is that accurate of tumor or just the specimen taken? 

2) with a tumor this small, does that decrease likelihood of node involvement? I am terrified it has spread there and what that means for outcome.

Sending love and light to all of you in your fight and so thankful for help navigating.....
