    it can spread to lungs.  You should get a biopsy of a lung nodule to be sure.

      er/pr status?  Multifocal ?  Your age?    Usually lumpectomy plus radiation is fine for DCIS.  If you opt for mastectomy you could avoid the radiation.  You could do the lumpectomy, see how the margins were and then do mastectomy if needed.

        that is true about the lung lesions.  What treatment options have been discussed?  ER/PR and HER are just markers that can direct therapy.

          IGm Myeloma is rare but possible.  IGM is the protein that is elevated.  I suspect he wants you back more frequently to make sure this is not progressing to myeloma.  If you have an elevated protein in your blood and no other symptoms then thats MGUS.  AT some point a BMB is needed but you should ask your ONC about that.

            stage 4 BC does have many treatment options.  Do you know your ER/PR and HER status?  Surgery/RT may be possible for the lung mets.

              have you had a bone marrow biopsy?  Its MGUS if your protein level is low, BMB results are low and you dont have symptoms.  You need symptoms for it to be myeloma.

                mucosal melanoma is rare and can be agressive.  I would go to a major cancer center or to a doc who has delt with this type of cancer before.

                  sorry about your daughter.  BMT is generally used for those patients who are at a high risk of relapse or who have disease that is resistant to other treatments.  Most patients can get to remission with chemotherapy.

                    in the US these are some reasons pts would be advised to get a BMT. -Previous myelodysplastic syndrome or other blood-related disease. -AML that may have developed because of previous chemotherapy treatments. -No remission after induction treatment. -High-risk cytogenetics. -AML that has relapsed.

                      the 8:21 translocation is low risk, but you should discuss all this with your ONC. Bottom line, you do not need a SCT to survive AML.
