I am not sure.
What is your mother's cancer stage?
The stage of cancer indicates the size of the tumour of abnormal cells and whether or not those cells are contained to the place of origin.
I am not sure
Stage 0: a growth of abnormal but non-invasive cells forming in the breast or surrounding areas
Stage I: the breast cancer has been detected in the early stages, cancer is evident, but it is contained to only the area where the first abnormal cells began to develop
Stage II: the breast cancer is growing, but it is still contained in the breast or growth has only extended to the nearby lymph nodes
Stage III: the breast cancer has extended to beyond the immediate region of the tumor and may have invaded nearby lymph nodes and muscles, but has not spread to distant organs
Stage IV: the breast cancer has spread to other distant areas and organs of the body; it is often referred to as metastasised breast cancer
