My mother is 80 years old. In 2008 she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She received treatment but it has reappeared again. What caused it to reappear again?

Recurrence. Depends on the type & stage of the first breast cancer & the treatments received (chemotherapy & radiation therapy). Depends on where it has reappeared: skin, chest wall, bone, lung, lymph node, etc. Breast cancers can recur and close exams & follow up after the first treatments are important. An oncologist will help direct the correct care & treatment options. Read more...
Recurrence Defined. Breast cancer may recur locally (in breast after lumpectomy) or systemically (distant organs=metastasis). If the former, mastectomy is recommended; if the latter, chemotherapy. The "why" part is a lot harder to answer, relating to the unique type of cancer she had and its original rx. I suggest you accompany your mother to her oncology appointments for support & a better understanding of the "why". Read more...

What kind of treatment should woman 87 years of age have with breast cancer?

IT DEPENDS. If you are otherwise very healthy and expect to live another 10 or more years , you could say that the treatment should be the same as for a younger patient (except maybe avoiding adjuvent chemotherapy for node negative disease , esp if hormone sensitive). If you are an infirmed 87 yo treatment should be more individualized so as not to harm you and lower your life expectancy. Read more...

Prognosis . Prognosis is excellent. I would still want to know size of tumor, grade, if there is presence of lymphovascular invasion, perineural invasion, ki-67 index, her 2 status, adjuvant online prognosis and finally the new molecular test oncotype DX or mammaprint, before giving my final opinion regarding the need for chemotherapy or not? Age is also imp and so is family history. Read more...
Tamoxifen. After a mastectomy, use of tamoxifen in an er+ tumor has the best historical experience for this rare condition in men. The decision to use chemotherapy may depend on comparable metrics used for breast cancer in women such as size of tumor, grade, presence of markers (her2neu, high ki- 67). Though no data in men, oncotype DX theoretically can help with treatment decision about need for chemo. Read more...

My 87 year old aunt has been diagnosed with breast cancer. She's had it for over a year. However, she doesn't want treatment, are there home remedies for this?

No. There are no home treatments for cancer. Surgical removal of the cancer (which can be a minor procedure) & hormone therapy can be a first start for treatment of breast cancer. Read more...
Not really. I would not recommend home therapies. A lot depends on her health. If the tumor is advanced, surgery may be needed to prevent chest involvement or skin ulceration. If the tumor is small and not aggressive it may be possible that an agent like tamoxifen (estrogen receptor blocker) may give some local control without surgery. Consultation with a compassionate breast cancer specialist is in order. Read more...
Discuss with surgeon. Usually surgical removal is the first step and is well tolerated even in the elderly. If she absolutely refuses surgery and the tumor is not too big, I have treated several patients like her with tamoxifen alone and have had reasonable success. There are no home remedies. A lot depends on her overall health (is she ambulatory, in a nursing home, etc.) and the size of the tumor. Read more...
