Medical oncologist: If your mother has breast cancer spread to the opposite breast and to the liver, she should be under the care of a qualified medical oncologist and perhaps a surgeon if the disease is limited in the liver. Some patients are candidates for surgical resection of liver spread and possibly a mastectomy on the opposite breast.
