hi...my mom has breast cancer..tomorrow she is going in for an operation where they will examine her lymph glands by taking/cutting it out to see what type of cancer it is and how far it has spread! my question is that I have read that this lymph glands are there to fight cancer. Now if they take it out, and the cancer comes back later in her life, they wont be there to fight the cancer any more as it will be taken out and that way, won t the cancer spread very faster? thank you

Hello I have had breast cancer this year and have been on arimidex and actenol (bone density) for about 3 months. I believe these drugs are making me tired depressed etc etc and I am no longer me .My breast cancer was slow growing , small, caught early, 2 lymph nodes removed but all ok.I had a lumpectomy and radiation ..no chemo. I want to stop taking drugs and use a naturopath / medical doctor, but I also want to make an informed decision. All info is about taking the drug and side effects nothing about women who chose to take no drugs. Hope you can direct me to where I can get some real statistics.Regardss Lesley
