Breast Cancer Stage
I am sorry to hear about your Mother's breast cancer and I can surely understand your anxiety concerning her situation.
I really believe that your Mother has to follow her Doctor's recommendation.When cancer has metastasized to the lymph nodes,she definitely needs to do exactly as her Oncologist advised her,because cancer cells can move on to succeeding lymph nodes and organs.
Many women can be cured by surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy or with the combination of several therapies.The right treatment extends the life and can prevent a second occurrence of the disease.The choice of the treatment of metastatic cancer of the breast depends on the multiplicity of factors, including: the characteristics of the tumor, the degree of the spreading of metastasis and their location.
Survival rates also depends on how breast cancer patients respond to their particular treatments.
Chemotherapy is not an easy thing to go through for anyone...but it does save lives.Sides effects can be alleviated by a variety of medicine that her Oncologist can prescribe for her in case she might need them.The bad symptoms caused by Chemotherapy will eventually disappears, when her treatments is over.
I sure hope that your Mother will do well with all her treatment,but please urge her to follow her Doctor's recommendations.
All the best to both of you... Read More At : ...
