My mom has been recently diagnosed with angiosarcoma of the breast grade 2/3, possibly due to the radiation she received on that breast for a ductal carcinoma treatment 4.5 years ago. She had a lumpectomy followed by radiation in 2004 august. We are worried about her prognosis based on what I read on the web - it pretty much looks like the end in few months. Any survivors of angiosarcoma and any care to be taken to survive longer?. As of now, they did mastectomy and removed the breast. The doctors are saying no chemotherapy as it is not effective in this case. Mom looks quite normal, doing her regular work. Any patterns of how soon it might come back (in other parts)?. What is a possible decent life expectancy from now on?.
