Mastectomy for HER2 +ve metastasis breast cancer.

Hi All,

After my mother's initial diagnosis of metastasis breast cancer(Lungs alone) in March, she had undergone 4 chemo cycles (Paclitaxel and trastuzumab)so far, and she in due with PET-CT scan this week to evaluate the response of the so far treatment. Our MO mentioned if there is good response and tumors in lungs were disappeared they will perform breast surgery (mastectomy).Also, they mentioned if there was no complete response (i.e tumors left in lungs but pretty good response) they will continue with the 4 chemo as curative intent but with different chemo drug and perform PET and decide on the mastectomy after.

I wanted to know from you all about mastectomy in metastasis stage,

In general, after how many cycles of chemo(after 3 months or 6 months) from initial diagnosis of mastectomy can be done?. I agree this will be performed only after finding good response.

Your experiences please,


Thanks All
