mom hoping somebody here could offer some help or advice. My mum went for a screening about two weeks ago and they pretty much told her there and then that she had breast cancer that had spread to lymph nodes.
Just waiting to find out whether it's spread further and then we'll know the stage (at the moment it's either 3 or 4) but it is confirmed as grade 3.
Now she's looking back she's reaslised she's had this lump for 'a few years'! I'd like her to be specific but I know she's now in shock and has a lot on her mind. It's not hormone responsive and we're awaiting the protein(?) results, so it could also be triple negative.
They said she'll have chemotherapy, surgery, immunotherapy and radiology once all the tests are completed. Does anybody have any experience of surviving this in their 60s even though they've had it 'a few years'.
She's also just told me today that she heard her rib 'crack' this morning when she was stretching. She's not in pain, just some discomfort. I know this can happen, but it's never happened to her before. Could this be a sign the cancer has spread?
Thank you for taking the time to read or reply x
