How reliable are the gene Dx testing, can we take decision of not taking chemo based on low score of OncotypeDx?

    It is only one tool in the decision making process. You need to take in all test results, tumor aggressiveness and characteristics, etc. Having a low score is encouraging though. I had it done and was in the middle (close to the higher side). Because of my tumor aggressiveness and other factors, I opted to do chemo because of the high risk of recurrence and just finished my 4 rounds. Radiation will be next. My cancer was caught early. I was stage 1, invasive initially only thought to be DCIS).

    I completely agree with Lori S. It is a tool to help you and your doctor make a treatment plan. I also would have chosen to do the treatment she chose too. My brother-in-law was diagnosed with IDC around Christmas and his oncotype-DX turned out to be a 1. He, correctly, chose not to do further treatment with the blessing of his oncologist. I think the outcome of this test results will help you and your doctor make the right choice. If after you speak to your doctor and are still not sure, don't hesitate to get a second opinion by another oncologist.

    I was in the high intermediate range as well with ilc. I have completed 4 of 12 weekly rounds of abraxane and carboplatin. The test made me feel better about the decision to do chemo.
