Brief Answer:
This cancer can be cured!

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

The reports(3) have been well received and reviewed.

1. Her cancer has not spread to distant organs. This is good news and suggests that chemotherapy and surgery combined would be able to cure her disease. Chemotherapy will go first to shrink the cancer and later followed by surgery to easy removal. The lymph nodes would be removed as well. Analysis of the specimen would guide the next steps for treatment.

2. Yes, it has gone to the lymph nodes. Dissection during surgery will offer definitive evidence after analysis.

3. Cancer doesn't spread overnight. The team is on this from the report and she should meet with the oncologist soon as planned.

4. This is early stage with good possibility of complete cure.

5. No one takes cancer lightly and your worried state is totally understandable. However, treatment with possibility of cure offers more hope and comfort in this light.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. I wish your mom the best possible outcome. Feel free to keep me updated about this.
