Lymph nodes

My mom just had 17 out of 26 lymph nodes test positive for breast cancer. The doctor is telling her she has stage 3 but still has to get scans of  her body to make sure that it’s nowhere else. Is having that many lymph nodes test postive normal for someone who has  stage III breast cancer?
