Occult Primary with Lymph Node Metastases
Does anyone else out there have experience with an Occult Primary Breast Cancer? I was diagnosed this week with Breast Cancer in a Left Axillary Lymph Node but they can't find any cancer in my breast - I've had whole breast US, breast MRI, and biopsy of two small lesions in my breast that they didn't think looked like cancer but biopsied because they can't find it (and biopsy results were negative). I am still in the staging process - bone scan, brain MRI, and CT/PET scheduled. The BS said that if they don't find anything I can keep my breast and they would just do an node disecction, chemo, and radiation but I'm worried about them missing something. I would be interested in hearing what other people in this scenario have done????
