? stage

This is a hypothetical question as I have yet to undergo a biopsy.  I have been referred urgently to a surgeon but as yet have no appt. I have a history of intraductal papillomas and DCIS with surgery in 2008 and radiation in 2009. My recent mammogram and US results came back identifying a mass adhering to my chest wall with one lymph node with a thickened cortex.  I have two swollen lymph nodes.  The other one seems fine. The radiologist has sugested that the leison is probably malignant.  If this is the case, what is the likely staging going to be?&

There is life at Stage IV!!!

Thanks so much for posting although we are sad to hear that have progressed into Stage IV. I must say you are certainly a shining example of a "Pink Warrior" !!  Your positive attitude is to be admired by all. You are correct that Stage IV patients are living much longer and with a much better quality of life. Of course this is due in part to the advancement in treatment BUT also a great deal to the newer outlook .... Think positive and FIGHT !!  Keep up the good work ..... All the blessings of this wonderful Christmas Season are wished for you by all of us here ........

Stage IV vs Stage IIIC

This is a bit wordy but this is what they are going by.... Cancer stage is based on the size of the tumor, whether the cancer is invasive or non-invasive, whether lymph nodes are involved, and whether the cancer has spread beyond the breast. The purpose of the staging system is to help organize the different factors and some of the personality features of the cancer into categories, in order to: best understand your prognosis (the most likely outcome of the disease) guide treatment decisions (together with other parts of your pathology report), since clinical studies of breast cancer treatments that you and your doctor will consider are partly organized by the staging system provide a common way to describe the extent of breast cancer for doctors and nurses all over the world, so that results of your treatment can be compared and understood Stage 0 Stage 0 is used to describe non-invasive breast cancers, such as DCIS and LCIS. In stage 0, there is no evidence of cancer cells or non-cancerous abnormal cells breaking out of the part of the breast in which they started, or of getting through to or invading neighboring normal tissue. Stage I Stage I describes invasive breast cancer (cancer cells are breaking through to or invading neighboring normal tissue) in which: the tumor measures up to 2 centimeters, AND no lymph nodes are involved Stage II Stage II is divided into subcategories known as IIA and IIB. Stage IIA describes invasive breast cancer in which: no tumor can be found in the breast, but cancer cells are found in the axillary lymph nodes (the lymph nodes under the arm), OR the tumor measures 2 centimeters or less and has spread to the axillary lymph nodes, OR the tumor is larger than 2 centimeters but not larger than 5 centimeters and has not spread to the axillary lymph nodes Stage IIB describes invasive breast cancer in which: the tumor is larger than 2 but no larger than 5 centimeters and has spread to the axillary lymph nodes, OR the tumor is larger than 5 centimeters but has not spread to the axillary lymph nodes Stage III Stage III is divided into subcategories known as IIIA, IIIB, and IIIC. Stage IIIA describes invasive breast cancer in which either: no tumor is found in the breast. Cancer is found in axillary lymph nodes that are clumped together or sticking to other structures, or cancer may have spread to lymph nodes near the breastbone, OR the tumor is 5 centimeters or smaller and has spread to axillary lymph nodes that are clumped together or sticking to other structures, OR the tumor is larger than 5 centimeters and has spread to axillary lymph nodes that are clumped together or sticking to other structures Stage IIIB describes invasive breast cancer in which: the tumor may be any size and has spread to the chest wall and/or skin of the breast AND may have spread to axillary lymph nodes that are clumped together or sticking to other structures, or cancer may have spread to lymph nodes near the breastbone Inflammatory breast cancer is considered at least stage IIIB. Stage IIIC describes invasive breast cancer in which: there may be no sign of cancer in the breast or, if there is a tumor, it may be any size and may have spread to the chest wall and/or the skin of the breast, AND the cancer has spread to lymph nodes above or below the collarbone, AND the cancer may have spread to axillary lymph nodes or to lymph nodes near the breastbone Stage IV Stage IV describes invasive breast cancer in which: the cancer has spread to other organs of the body -- usually the lungs, liver, bone, or brain "Metastatic at presentation" means that the breast cancer has spread beyond the breast and nearby lymph nodes, even though this is the first diagnosis of breast cancer. The reason for this is that the primary breast cancer was not found when it was only inside the breast. Metastatic cancer is considered stage IV. Additional staging information You may also hear terms such as "early" or "earlier" stage, "later," or "advanced" stage breast cancer. Although these terms are not medically precise (they may be used differently by different doctors), here is a general idea of how they apply to the official staging system: Early stage Stage 0 Stage I Stage II Some stage III Later or advanced stage Other stage III Stage IV Doctors use a staging system to determine how far a cancer has spread. The most common system is the TNM staging system. You may hear the cancer described by three characteristics: size (T stands for tumor) lymph node involvement (N stands for node) whether it has metastasized (M stands for metastasis) The T (size) category describes the original (primary) tumor: TX means the tumor can't be measured or found. T0 means there isn't any evidence of the primary tumor. Tis means the cancer is "in situ" (the tumor has not started growing into the breast tissue). The numbers T1-T4 describe the size and/or how much the cancer has grown into the breast tissue. The higher the T number, the larger the tumor and/or the more it may have grown into the breast tissue. The N (node involvement) category describes whether or not the cancer has reached nearby lymph nodes: NX means the nearby lymph nodes can't be measured or found. N0 means nearby lymph nodes do not contain cancer. The numbers N1-N3 describe the size, location, and/or the number of lymph nodes involved. The higher the N number, the more the lymph nodes are involved. The M (metastasis) category tells whether there are distant metastases (whether the cancer has spread to other parts of body): MX means metastasis can't be measured or found. M0 means there are no distant metastases. M1 means that distant metastases were found. Once the pathologist knows your T, N, and M characteristics, they are combined in a process called stage grouping, and an overall stage is assigned. For example, a T1, N0, M0 breast cancer would mean that the primary breast tumor: is less than 2 centimeters across (T1) does not have lymph node involvement (N0) has not spread to distant parts of the body (M0) This cancer would be grouped as a stage I cancer. Best wishes.

Sister diagnosed with Endo Cervix Cancer stage III

Hi.  Stage 3 cervical cancer means that the tumor has extended beyond the uterus and has already reached either the walls of the pelvis or the lower third of the vagina.  Stage 3 disease could also mean that the tumor has caused enough blockage on the urinary tract. This results in the urine being dammed back into the kidney and causing the kidney to swell (hydronephrosis) and to shut down (become non-functional).  Stage 3 cervical cancer is still potentially curable with a combination of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, but only about 30 - 50% of women with this stage survive after five years.

stage 5 breast cancer

Did your wife just have a mammogram and were the results of the mammogram scored with a BIRADS score of 5?  I have not heard of stage 5 cancer, there are only 4.  However, a BIRADS score of 5 is what I had about a year ago and it did turn out that I had a small tumor of cancer and much DCIS, which are precancerous cells.   A BIRADS score of 5 does not always mean there is definitely cancer present, but there is something highly suspicious on the mammogram that needs to be checked out.  The next step may be an ultrasound, MRI and/or biopsy.   In the time of initial diagnosis, it is easy to get the unfamiliar terms confused.  Please check the report again and we will do whatever we can to help.  I am thinking of you.
