Seeking for second Opinion -Rescue
I'm sorry to hear what happened. Cryotherapy will be of limited and questionable use at this point since this will only address one lesion at a time (localized form of treatment) compared to continuing chemotherapy with or without the biologic treatment Herceptin (chemotherapy is a "systemic" form of treatment which means it targets all the tumors at once, compared to a localized form of treatment). However, localized form of treatment can be given for palliative purposes. Meaning if for example the breast mass is really painful or is infected, then you may opt to have this surgically removed to improve the person's quality of life. Even with this intention, cryotherapy is still questionable.
It is OK to seek second opinion with another oncologist and I suggest you discuss with them regarding the points I have raised above. For the moment, it seems that chemotherapy (systemic therapy) is the best form of treatment for your sister.
I hope she gets better, and hoping for the best. Regards. Read More At : ...
