This is Dr. David
I am a cancer doctor.
I am sorry about your adenoid carcinoma of your breast. this is a rare type of histology for breast cancer.
your daughters are not at risks for adenoid carcinomas of the breast.
they don't need genetic testing for breast cancer, but they should start to get mammograms and ultrasound of their breast at age 40.
at age 58, you don't need genetic testing for breast cancer. this will not change your treatment plan.
but you may benefit from Oncotype genetic tests of your breast cancer cells to tell you what your systemic cancer spread risk is to see if you might benefit from chemotherapy or not.
it is best that you consult with both a medical oncologist (chemotherapy doctor) and radiation oncologist after your mastectomy to see if you need additional therapy after your mastectomy.
these additional treatments can improve your chances of cure
ask your doctors to send the pathology slides out also to a large NCCN cancer hospital pathology department for second opinion pathology evaluation of the slides to double check on the diagnosis to make sure it is a adenoid carcinoma in your breast.
