Respected Doctor
1. My mother was diagnosed with cacer in two places i.e. Uterus and breast. She was operated for both at the same time and has recovered quite well.
2. Doctors also gave six doses of Chemothrapy, to which she responded satisfactorily.
3. EP/ER test was done and was found positive for Uterus and negative for breast.
4. What does this imply?
5. Also which medicine can be prescribed and for how long? What are the recurrence chances?

I'm glad your mother has recovered and responded satisfactorily to chemo.

The best explanation I've found on the web explaining the relationship of ER estrogen receptor gene to breast and uterine cancer is here:

Here are other good links:
