Breast Cancer mets to Ovary

I would love to hear from others that have had breast cancer that spread to the ovaries. I had a profalactic (sp?) hysterectomy on May 2 and they found that breast cancer had spread to my left ovary. I have been a breast cancer survivor for 2 years and was on tamoxifen. My Onc has me on Aromasin for 5 years. No chemo, no other treatment. She said they caught it early. I am wondering if there is anyone that can tell me about their similar experience? Thanks so much! Linda

Breast Cancer mets to Ovary

I hae Stage 4 BC with Mets to the bones only - or at least that is what I thought before I decided to have my ovaries removed.  My cancer is Estrogen + so I figured I did not need the ovaries anymore.  My onc said it was up to me - he didn't really see a need for it.  My Gyn agree to do it laproscopically and discovered that the right ovary was full of breast cancer.  They could not get at the left bcause of scar tissue from a previous surgery (hissy 10 years ago) but the scar tissue in that area also showed signs of BC. Now after the fact the onc is happy that they discovered the ovaries were full of cancer.  It did not change my treatment at all.  It might in the future since it is in soft tissue compared to hte hard of bones.   I wish you luck -   Let me now if I can give you any more info.

Abdominal Wall intense light up on PET Scan

Wait to see if it grows larger? Ummm.. NO. It takes about 3 million cancer cells to group together to "light up" on a PET scan. Chances it's cancer? Hmmmm. If it was me, I'd have been there already. Good luck!

thin hair with bald patch

I'm not quite sure exactly what you are asking for but if it's for a wig then you should contact The Susan G. Komen Foundation as they will usually fund one wig purchase for breast cancer patients. You might also contact the Amer. Cancer Society for additional advice regarding help with the hair problem. Often after Chemo the hair loss is permanent so it would be a waste of money to try regrowth preparations.  Good Luck ....

how are breast mets found

Either by scans or by symptoms. Some Oncologists do routine interval scans and some do not. There is no proof that length of survival is increased when mets is found by scan than if discovered after symptoms appear. I personally don't care to live my life worrying about the next PET scan or Bone scan but it's a personal decision. Regards ....

Cancer spreading from the breast - ovaries- now liver

Hi, Are there any specific questions that you have? You could look up breast cancer metastasis or talk to your doctor about any queries or doubts that you have or post us. The ovarian cancer would not be due to breast metastasis most probably. Breast cancer can spread to other parts of the body via blood vessels or the lymphatic system. So it can spread to the lungs, pleura, liver, brain, and most commonly to the bones. Regards.

breast cancer with bone mets and now liver mets

It is true that Bone Mets can be managed fairly well ..... liver involvement is another story. Your Sister's Oncologist would be your best source for treatment options at this stage. Many metastatic cancers will respond to some type of therapy but "what" depends upon the degree of involvement as well as the age and condition of the patient. You never know how a cancer will respond to any treatment until it is tried. Hopefully she will have a good response to whatever her Oncologist advises.  Kindest regards ....

could use your knowledge!!!

Hi there! Without a clinical evaluation, it would be inappropriate to comment on the situation. Lumps in the region could occur due to benign causes such as cysts, warts etc or due to malignant growths. I would suggest getting this evaluated by a gynaecologist at your earliest convenience for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Hope this helps. Take care!

Are Ovarian, breast and thyroid cancers linked

Hi.  Women who carry certain cancer genes such as the BRCA 1 or BRCA 2 genes have an increased chance not only of developing breast cancer, but also ovarian and thyroid cancers.  However, this condition (being a BRCA gene carrier) is relatively rare. It is very unusual for ovarian cancer to spread to the breast and thyroid.  So your breast and thyroid conditions are probably not related to your ovarian cyst, unless you have the rare condition of being a BRCA carrier.   I'm not even sure if this is applicable to your condition since you've had two biopsies and these have turned out to be negative.  As far as the tests go, you don't have cancer at present.  So relax and quit worrying!
