My results from a ultrasound guided biopsy was grade 1 t2, n2, m1 what does this mean in layman terms ? Note I have no insurance and my MRI located 2 malignant tumors on my chest wall they called it invasive ductal carcinoma. I'm confused about what this means
Thank you

Hello, Gina!

Thank you for writing to us.

I am sorry, but we do not analyze or interpret lab or test results/reports for our readers. I understand how frustrating it is to have results with no explanation which is why you need to contact your doctor's office and have someone spend some time, even over the phone, to let you where you stand regarding the health.

In the meantime, I can give you some general information.

Invasive ductal carcinoma sometimes called infiltrating ductal carcinoma, is the most common type of breast cancer. About 80% of all breast cancers are invasive ductal carcinomas. Invasive means that cancer has “invaded” or spread to the surrounding breast tissues. As to the staging results you mention above, I can give you some information that you can read though. It's too much information to list here. Copy/paste the link below. It's a good resource that I hope will help.


Please keep us updated.
