    If cancer reoccurs, what stage do you become?

    I am Stage 2A, and if my cancer were to come back, I want to know what stage I would be.

      only your oncologist would be able to give that information.

      That would depend on where it recurred, same spot local to the spotor at a distant site. Best of luck, Carm RN.

      I was a Stage 1 TNBC, and during my treatment it came back to 1 lymph node (I believe it's a Regional recurrence). I asked my radiation oncologist, he said probably a stage 2. I was looking for more than a probably.. but I'll take it..I meet w/Medical Oncologist next week and see what he says...this can be very confusing. Good luck to you.
