After a woman has a lumpectomy, does the doctors send her tumor over to a lab to have it examined to examine the cancer cells? What if there are no cancer cells present in the tumor does that mean that the woman has been misdiagnosed with having cancer? Also is a estrogen negative and progesterone negative faster growing tumors or slower growing and do all stage 1 breast cancer patients with this tumor have to have chemothrapy?
