What exactly does it mean when breast cancer (level 1 tumor) has already gone into the bones?

In brief: Not good

That would indicate metastasis of the tumor (spreading to the distant, unrelated organs).
It is a very bad sign, indicating an advanced, possibly more aggressive tumor, and usually makes treatment more difficult and has a lower 5 year survival rate.
