My 39 year old sister was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer around 2 months ago. I'm not very medical term inclined, but we know this:
There are actually 6 masses in her left breast. Five are contained within the breast, one is "intimately associated with the chest wall".
There is cancer in one of the axillary lymph nodes on the left side.
There is cancer in the internal mammary lymph node chain.
There is a 3.2cm x 2.2cm tumor in her liver.
The MRI of her liver confirmed the metastatic lesion.
Final diagnosis is Stage 4, metastatic breast cancer with high grade spindle cell metaplasia.
What, exactly, is spindle cell metaplasia?
She also had genetic testing done and those results came back negative.
She's currently involved in this clinical trial:
"Randomized Phase III study of pembrolizumab plus chemotherapy vs placebo plus chemotherapy for previously untreated metastatic triple negative breast cancer."
Chemotherapy = Abraxane.
Does anyone have knowledge? Experience?
