    What has your doctor told you? My surgeon removed 8 even though they looked OK on my MRI. They were all negative and I still had chemo. and rads. The radiation also covered the axilla though the nodes were gone.

    I don't think it matters. It depends on your stage, grade and family history.

    There are many factors other than lymph nodes that determine if chemo is necessary. I was destined for chemo because of the size of my tumor. I had one positive node but it didn't change my treatment.

    I had 1 lymph node with cancer. My onco type was also low so no chemo! 37 rounds of radiation and 10 years of tamoxifen. That oncotype test is the best determining factor for my case
