Suggested Questions And Answer :

breast /bone mets /rod in femur surgery was done too prematurely.

Hi I have researched the bone meds before I started taking them.  I'm guessing they are similar to what I take?  I'm on Pamidronate (aredia) for multiple myeloma bone damage (mostly spine lesions in my case) One of the side effects is increased hip fractures at the head of the femur.  I have some thinning in one hip too.  In your case if your hip was already compromised the bone med may not have helped that area. Not sure if that makes you feel better knowing it or not? On another positive note my friend had a hip replacement that had a complication where she had to have her leg broken in the femur because the implant made her leg longer then her other leg.  It was a very tough year for her, but she is now a few years out of it and you could hardley tell she went through such an ordeal.  (she did use crutches for a year, then a cane)  She said getting good pain control helped. Do you have a pain management doctor?  They may be able to help you so you have the strength to get through chemo.  Also don't be afraid to get support like drivers to take you to and from appointments.  I'm in Canada, but the cancer society has volunteers who do this.

Evidently these lumps have been determined to be either cysts or fibroadenomas; both of which are benign. Even though you have a family history of breast cancer this does not mean that you will also develop the disease. You are being followed frequently and that is standard treatment under the circumstances. The lumps can be removed surgically if they are causing you pain or discomfort but removal is not necessary and you most likely will develop more.   Regards ..

Is calcificaton a cancer?

Calcifications in and of themselves are not cancer. They are an indication that the breast tissue is reacting to some abnormality within the breast. They are only a cause for concern when they are seen in clusters or groups; scattered about they are a normal finding. Regards .....

Breast Lumps

You are doing the right thing by having the biopsy done.  No one can tell you whether or not this is cancer until that pathology reports are in.  Relax, I know waiting is terrible.  First you have to wait for the biopsy and then you will have to wait for the results of the biopsy.  Just try and stay busy and pamper yourself.  You will not change the outcome by worrying, you will just stress yourself and your family.  There are a lot of us who have been through this, just take one day at a time and if you need to talk, we are here.  God Bless, Warmest Regards, Susan

CA 27.29

Hi there. At the present the utility of the CA 27.29 test for the detection of early breast cancer recurrence is still controversial, and there are no standard recommendations for this.  However, some specialized centers and oncologist are using this based on their personal or their center's experience and own recommendations. With this said, it is very hard to interpret the drop from 80 to 60 especially in someome with no other symptoms pertaining to cancer recurrence.  The decision to have further tests done will depend on the comfort levels of both the patient and the doctor, and there may be no right or wrong decision at this point.  If the levels remain elevated after two weeks, then it might be prudent to have additional tests (PET CT) done. Regards and God bless.

Breast Cancer question

Cyberknife is used primarily for mets or primary cancer of the brain where one small area can be dealt with by this method. When there has been mets to the abdominal organs, Chemo is usually the treatment of choice. I'm sure there has been sufficient testing done in order for the Dr.s to know that the stomach and liver are involved and these are areas that could not be "cut out" by the cyberknife technique. I would certainly abide by the recommendation of the Oncologist and be as aggressive with treatment as he thinks is safe in her particular situation.  Kindest regards .....

concerned breast biopsy sent to Stanford

My guess is that the lab is seeking a 2nd, independent opinion on the pathological findings of the biopsy before any conclusions and recommendations are made. Too bad that you have to wait a little longer for the results. I hope all turns out well for you... good luck.
