About the Oncotype DX Test

The Oncotype DX test definitively identifies the vast majority of women with early-stage breast cancer who will not benefit from chemotherapy as well as the important minority of women for whom chemotherapy can be life-saving. The test provides a personalized score based on the biology of your tumor that can help tailor treatment decisions for your individual cancer. Watch the video to learn more.

Oncotype DX Quiz

Are you a newly diagnosed breast cancer patient or caregiver trying to determine what treatment plan is right for you or a loved one?

What stage is your breast cancer?

Based on your responses, it appears that you have pre-invasive (Stage 0) breast cancer – known medically as ductal carcinoma in situ – with no lymph node involvement.

Because DCIS is non-invasive, chemotherapy is never recommended. You may be a candidate for the Oncotype DX DCIS test. Learn more about your treatment options for DCIS breast cancer at MyBreastCancerTreatment.org.

Has your breast cancer been diagnosed as estrogen receptor positive (ER+)?

Does your breast cancer have lymph node involvement?

Based on your responses, it appears that you have early-stage invasive breast cancer that is estrogen receptor-positive (ER+) and that you may be a candidate for the Oncotype DX breast cancer test.

I’m not sure. How do I find out I have lymph node involvement?

Lymph Node Involvement

If a woman diagnosed with breast cancer has lymph node involvement, it means that their cancer has spread from their original breast tumor to the underarm lymph nodes on the side of their breast cancer. Lymph node status is determined when your doctor removes one or several of your lymph nodes so they can be examined under a microscope for cancer cells.

Based on your response, it appears that your Stage I/II/IIIa breast cancer is not estrogen receptor-positive (ER+).

I'm not sure. How do I find out if my cancer is estrogen receptor-positive?

Estrogen Receptor Status

Hormones are naturally occurring chemicals in the body that stimulate the growth of hormone-sensitive tissues, such as those in the breast. In some cases of breast cancer, the hormones estrogen and progesterone may stimulate tumor growth. Your doctor will likely have your tumor tested to find out if your cancer is hormone-dependent.

Your hormone receptor status is important in determining the appropriate treatment options for your breast cancer. If you do not know your hormone receptor status, please check with your physician.

I'm not sure. How do I find out what stage my breast cancer is?

Breast Cancer Stages

Cancer staging is the assessment of how far a person's breast cancer has progressed and influences treatment decisions and prognosis. Breast cancer staging is a classification method based on the size of your cancer and how far it has (or hasn’t) spread beyond its original location within the breast. It is usually determined after your tumor is removed and your lymph nodes have been examined, although additional blood and imaging tests may also be needed. Your medical team can provide you with a copy of your pathology report.

The Oncotype DX breast cancer test is a genomic test that may help guide treatment decisions for patients with non-invasive breast cancer, often referred to as ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), and help early-stage invasive breast cancer patients with estrogen receptor-positive (ER+) disease evaluate if they will benefit from chemotherapy.
