I was diagnosed with BC in Qatar, had my chemotherapy course there, came to Bangalore for mastectomy with primary reconstruction and am now undergoing radiotherapy here. I am not sure, if it is because of treatment at multiple places, but I have never got information about the stage of my cancer. Not when it was first diagnosed and neither when it was pathologically examined post mastectomy. I asked my medical oncologist who told me "early stages" in one meeting and "maybe stage2" in the next meeting. My breast surgeon said that they hadn't staged it. She was pretty vague about it. How can I get this information? Is it true that I needed to get a pet scan to know this? Is it purely academic or is there any other purpose in staging of cancers? Can the lack of this information affect my future medically since I am planning to move to another country soon yet again? Completely confused and feeling a little cheated by the medical system.
