    Skull metasteses

    So, they are spreading and my left jaw and ear area are swelling. Has anyone dealt with skull mets that progressed?

      Hi Michelle, I have Stage IV BC also with mets to bone and liver. I know the pain you are feeling and wanted to send hugs and prayers your way. Mine hasn't gotten to the skull YET, but have them on spine ribs , chest wall and pelvis. The pain meds only take the edge off and leaves a dull deep ache. My heart goes out to you.

      I have skull mets - no progression yet - they never say anything to me about them - If you are on any zometa make sure that is not causing any jaw issues. I hate knowing that mets are on my head. SO sorry for you. I live like MillieS . Dull aches. Hang in there and as usual ask the Doc everything you need to know.

      Hi, I have Inflammatory Breast Cancer with mets to the spine and pelvic area. Can usually handle the pain but nights are worse. Wish I could help but I can offer prayers and hugs! Hang in there and continue the fight!
