I am in the 5% of people diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer at the initial time of diagnosis. I am 44 years old. My tumor did not show up on mammograms. I found it myself 5 months after my annual scan. It has spread to my liver which was confirmed by biopsy. I finished my chemo in Jan '17. I recently had a pet scan which shows no evidence of disease. I am scheduled for a lumpectomy to remove whatever dead or potential cancer cells may be left. It has been a world wind since being dx in July '16. I could have made it through this as well as I have without my husband what has worked from home since I was diagnosed.
