Is there any recommendation for post operative chemotherapy?
Recent European (St Gallen Consensus Conference) and American (National Comprehensive Cancer Network) guidelines clearly state that a breast cancer patient with tumor of size 2 cm (as in your mothers case) would benefit from chemotherapy.
All the best, and God Bless!
