Chemeotherapy for breast cancer

After removal of left breast through surgery, Dr. recommends chemeo!
How important is chemeo and what if chemeo is not done, the age of patient is 60 years, diabetic and blood pressure. Is there any blood test that can confirm the cancerous cells

Re: Chemeotherapy for breast cancer

There are many reasons why they recommend this but usually because the cancer has the likelihood of spreading or has already spread. And yes, they can confirm this thru testing. Am sorry your loved one has to go thru this but it is necessary to save her life.

Re: Chemeotherapy for breast cancer

Thank you very much, do you have names of the BLOOD TESTS, which can confirm the presence of cancerous cells in the body? I will appreciate if you can list them all
