Need help & advice for best friend
I am writing for my bestie. She was diagnosed with breast cancer 5 years ago had mastectomy & chemo, stage 2 estrogen driven, no lymph nodes involved. She went on Tamoxifen but she had awful joint pain so stopped. She decided to have a hysterectomy to help to minimise ovarian cancer. Forward 5 years, had a few problems with joint pain & ruination so decided to get bloods done earlier than usual & her tumour markers were up. I think they were 90 meant to be 30 could of been CA125? Anyway had ct saw shadowing in stomach area, had pet scan & it said widespread omental stranding with some ascites. Highly suspicious for peritoneal metastaties? Unknown primary. All her organs are clear as well as her lymph nodes. Could someone please try & explain what this means. Can you get ovarian cancer with no uterus? Is it secondary from her breast cancer. Is it cancer? I just want to be prepared so I can do the best I can for her. Thank you all so much for any of your thoughts.
