    Hi zohra, Sorry to hear of your sister's diagnosis but glad to hear your mom is doing well. So by this report it appears that there is no metastasis to bones, lung and other major organs. It is recommended that she have an Ultrasound and fine needle aspiration of a lymph node that is just above her left clavicle and axillary region They will take a look at the cells to see if they are malignant.

    I know this is all overwhelming but just take it one step at a time. Many on this site have or dealt with similar situation as your sister's. There are many categories on this site for great information. If you know your sister's exact type of breast cancer you can read about many experiences here. I would advise to ask lots of questions, I also found it useful to have a binder with reports, appointments, questions etc to stay organized. Here is some info to get you started.

    I'm sure your sister's doctor will come up with a good treatment plan and you will all feel better once this is established. Wishing you and your family positivity, strength and hope.
