Breast cancer HER2

I'm new to this site. Just hoping for a bit of reassurance. Been diagnosed with breast cancer. Having lumpectomy in 2 weeks and will then have to wait for results before I know if chemo or just radiotherapy is required. Scary part for me is it's grade 3, positive for oestrogen receptors and HER2 borderline ( they are retesting that). They are saying it's treatable but when I've tried to look about the HER2 result, if it is positive, it's terrifying me. Sorry for rambling on. I'm still in shock from the diagnosis and my mind is all over the place!
