Hi All, what is the probability of getting the lung cancer after the breast cancer?
Is DICS with Stage 0,non-invasive ER –ve and PR-ve will have a chance to get the lung cancer? Please provide me the information.
Lung cancer can be primary (meaning emerging directly from lung) or secondary (emerging from some other tissue and migrating to the lungs).
Primary lung cancer does not emerge from a primary breast cancer.
Secondary lung cancer can come from a primary breast cancer. DCIS is not invasive breast cancer. The issues for DCIS tend to be focus more on developing subsequent invasive breast cancer. Hence, before any secondary in the lung, chances are there will be problems in the breast first.
Discuss risk reduction for subsequent breast cancer with your doctor.
