First I wanna say that I was looking for some knowledge and I think this site was really helpful.
My mom had masectomy in the breast and the cancer has spread to 3-4lung nodules in one year. I know it maybe not a good forum to post it but I live outside India and I am thinking of eventually moving with them but dont wanna go there immediately and risk their life with covid. I asked the oncologist that question as well but couldn't get a concrete answer:
She has a grade 2 cancer(internet says it spreads modestly) and she went through chemo and radio and now she has been suggested letrozole/palbocicib. My question is how fast does stage 4 cancer spread . She currently only have it in nodules and on internet it says for stage 4 cancer 22 percent people live for 5 years and it is freaking me out. Is there a difference for the prognosis of stage 4 cancer which has reached nodules vs cancer that has reached other body parts.
I know that I can only pray but just wanted to have a perspective on the prognosis part.
