A question from Audrey H: Tumor Found in Supraclavicular Node 8 months after breast cancer treatment, could this be metastasis? ?
Diagnosed March 2007 with Stage 1 breast cancer, right breast. Axillary node removed, negative for cancer. Went through chemo and radiation, finished in February 2008. Went to follow-up October 13, first time for follow-up needed a break from doctors for a while. Complained of pain which I have had for the last 2-3 months from top of right breast to over shoulder and down the back. Sono showed tumor in supraclavicular node, right side. I have a CT scan on Thursday the 30th.
What does a CT scan show? Being that I just finished cancer treatment seems metastasis is the likely answer?

Answer by Panda
Hopefully it will turn out to be benign or something different, but yes metastasis is always a worry once you’ve been diagnosed with cancer.
Cancer can be very deceptive. A CT will give a better image of the tumor or spot and also may give indication if there are any more tumors to be seen. Be persistent about this . . you need to know exactly what you are dealing with. Also if this turns out to be nothing it is always a good idea to have CT or even a PET scan to use as a ‘baseline’ . . the doctor needs to have the scans to compare every three to six months to make sure the cancer is gone or to measure tumor shrinkage or track relapse.

Good luck and stay strong.

A diagnosis of breast cancer can be very difficult. Surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and facing such a serious illness may make some women feel like they’ve lost control of their lives. Those feelings are very common. But the breast cancer survivor you’re about to meet was able to get back into control. She made some lifestyle changes that not only made her lose weight and feel better, but they also reduced her risk of the cancer coming back.

Question by deer: What can you do to help prevent breast cancer after you start taking birth control pills?
Birth control pills can cause breast cancer. What type of “preventative maintenance” can you do while you’re on them?

The top answer:

Answer by hb232
there is no sure way to prevent breast cancer; however, regular exercise and eating healthy can’t hurt. Make sure you are doing monthly self breast exams and getting a mammogram if you 40 or over (or earlier if you have a history).

Top answer:

Answer by lo_mcg
I’m not on Tamoxifen, I’m on Arimidex; most of the women I know who take Tamoxifen say they have put on weight with it, and/or have difficulty losing weight.
