Q. I don’t know what situation this stage of cancer will put her in? my friend `s sister is diagnosed with second stage of breast cancer. They say it is advanced and has happened due to her hormonal changes. She had her treatment with chemotherapy recently. Her hormone based treatment is still to be given. Her family is in terrible condition. She was the soul of her family. She has always kept us happy and she was the one who did take absolute care of family members. She is lovable in nature and innocent. I don’t know what situation this stage of cancer will put her in?

A. I am sorry. But don’t worry. This stage cancer can be treated well. They have treated her with chemotherapy and now she will be treated with anti-estrogen therapy. It is used for its protective effect on the non cancerous breast tissue. No problem it can be treated. Many have been treated well and she will also get well.
