    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    I was first diagnosed in 1998 with Breast Cancer where I chose to have a mastecomy and was told that they had gotten it all and gave me a clean bill of health. 12 years later I felt a sore spot under my rib cage. I went to the Dr and low and behold the breast had metasized to my liver and a couple of other places. I had a 10cm tumor on my liver. That was 2 years ago
