    Has anyone else had Breast Cancer BRCA1 that has spreed to Liver.

    Everything I have read is not good not a good survivor rate.

      I am BRCA negative, but my TNBC metastasized in my liver - the original lesion was 1.3 CM, and as my last scan it was 99MM, so my treatment is working. You are a unique person not a statistic, People are learning lots more about cancers and new treatments are being tested and are becoming available all the time. I am also being treated for advanced renal cell carcinoma (also liver lesions), I got the diagnosis in July 2009, and have been stable since then. Don't give up. Many people on this site have beat stage 4 cancers.

      My aunt has BRCA1 and she started with tongue cancer, then about ten years later ovarian cancer and most recently pancreatic cancer. Her prognosis was not encouraging either, but here she is, a strong survivor with a clean scan and cause for celebration. Don't give up!

      My Feb. PET scan (after 3 chemo. treatments) showed no cancer in my liver. They called it resolved. No cancer showed in my lymph nodes or in my breast.

      I'm finishing my 6th and last chemo. on Friday. Then surgery will be set up. I may have to have radiation if enough of the nodes are shown to have been involved.
