I found out today that my mum has been diagnosed with about 3cm, Stage 2, TNBC on her left breast. It has spread to her lymph nodes and to her armpit. She is 63y old. The oncologist has suggested 1) mastectomy with chemo if applicable 2) lumpectomy with chemo & radio 3) breast reconstruction. He is going 50/50 with options 1 & 2.
I would like some advice on where to from here. Any advice on if option 1 or 2? I am leaning towards mastectomy and am thinking if she should do mastectomy of both breasts eventhough no cancer has been detected on her right breast. Should I get another doctor's opinion?
I would like to keep my mum well informed of her options. So any advice or experience would be helpful.
