My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 years ago. After radiation treatment, everything seemed fine. Last month she was told that she had two tumors; both were two inches, one on her liver and one on her pancreas. They did a biopsy on her liver, the results was that it was stage 4 cancer. She was told it was from her breast cancer.
I love my mother and I know she loves me, but she never really tells me everything because she doesn’t want me to worry (which only makes me worry more). She said the doctor told her it is treatable. Everything I have read says that stage 4 cancer is not curable. Can anyone help me understand more of this? What should I be expecting? I’m a “numbers” type of person and I would really like to have some real statistic to help.
