My mother was just diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. Would cryotherapy/surgery be good for her to try?

No. Stage 4 breast cancer is defined by the spread of cancer to other organ(s). This requires treating the entire body, typically with chemotherapy. Breast surgery plays a (limited) role in treating stage 4 patients, but never with cryotherapy. Perhaps you could come with your mother the next time she sees her medical oncologist?
Medically. Stage 4 breast cancer is treated medically. You should discuss your concerns with your medical oncologist.

My mother had breast cancer and metastasis into brain. She has completed IMRT Radiation Theraphy (16 sittings) 3 weeks before. I recently came to know about SRS-Gammaknife Radio surgery for Brain which is effective than normal RT. Pls need details.

Depends on how many. Stereotactic Radiosurgery otherwise know as Gammaknife, Cyberknife, etc. is highly effective and in many ways safer treatment than IMRT Radiation therapy. But it cannot be used on everyone and depends on the numbers of metastasis and the size of them. If the tumors are bigger than 3 cm and/or numerous than SRS is not recommended. Read more...

Poor prognosis. Brain mets represents late stage disease, If solitary then resection can be tried or if large lesion shrinks with IMRT then resection may be tried. When lesion is solitary then best RT is Gamma knife which is high intensity, low dose volume at about 2-3 cm. For larger lesion the high intensity localized RT is known as Cyberknife, delivered in a rotation system in which the patient is centered. Read more...

My mother had 5 years ago of breast cancer, but now good health, but this time the doctor found that the analysis of (cea) has increased by 13.6 why?

That's a problem. That is why markers are not the greatest. Now she is going to need to get scans. Cea is better for colon cancer but can be elevated in other cancers. However, tumor markers should not be used in early stage breast cancer. Read more...
The CEA should not. Have been ordered unless it was measured at the outset and was high at diagnosis. This exemplifies the use of an unproven test that will lead to expensive probing that may or may not find something work knowing, meaning needing treatment that results in benefit. Read more...
Can't say. I wonder why it was ordered to begin with. Was it routine or was she having some symptoms? The problem with markers is that once found high (and confirmed high), we are almost obligated to work it up with additional tests. Best wishes to both, hope it is nothing serious. Read more...
