Also—since some women are cured of this disease and others aren't—it depends on factors of which medical science is now ignorant. ...Read more

Cancer with unknown primary tumor. Enlarged lymphnodes under armpits. Tumor find in breastbone. Ok ct Scan of lungs, abdomen, breast. Lymphoma?

Need biopsy done: A biopsy of one of the axillary lymph nodes may provide some guidance about the primary source of this tumor. It could be breast Cancer which sometimes would not show on a Mammogram(it is called an Occult Primary). Without obtaining tissue for microscopic exam it is difficult to proceed further. Ask his oncologist to provide you some answers and an understanding of this problem. ...Read more

Yes/Early stage-4: Spread of tumor into supraclavicular nodes makes it inoperable which males it stage 4(when you add the opposite supracalviculatr nodes. Yet it is early phase of stage -4.

22yrs old mammogram normal enlarged right axillary lymph node 7mm left axillary lymph node 3mm waiting biopsy results. Family history breast cancer?

Be patient: Even with a family history of breast cancer, it would be very rare for a 22 yo to have the disease. You only have about a 14-15% chance of developing breast cancer, unless there are multiple family members who have the disease. There are many reasons for lymph nodes to enlarge, many benign, so just wait for the results. Good luck. ...Read more
