Hi, Just picked up this thread whilst searching as I am also hoping to get tested on the NHS. I have ILC, ER+, with 2 positive lymph nodes, and I understand that if you have under three nodes positive, that you can have the Oncotype DX test, my Predict score is to me marginal (8%), but doesn't take into account that ILC is much more resistant to chemo than IDC. So far my oncologist has not suggested Oncotype DX test but has suggested I go on the Optima trial, if anyone has any info I would be really grateful. Looking at the NICE guidelines it looks as if the test should be available for anyone with under 3 positive lymph nodes - according to the appendices but I don't know if that means that it is or isn't available on the NHS or not. Thank you in advance to anyone that can help. Hope you are all doing ok out there.
