I am a 65 year old female and had a radical mastectomy, as there were traces of cancer which has now spread to the liver etc. Do I have a chance without chemotherapy or radiation? Diet and other health care possibility?

Hi yes 100% you have chances to survive and get cured- if you use cancero medicine course - 6 months or so. U may not need chemo but a little bit of radiation may or may not be required alongwith. So you can avoid side effects of chemo. - course available.

Dear lybrate-user, if the liver was involved it becomes a stage 4 cancer. Since local disease has been removed by radical mastectomy you need some form of treatment for metastasis. We should know the other parameters of the biopsy like hormonal status. If positive you will need convenient chemo or hormone therapy.
