I am a breast cancer survivor of nearly two years. Mine was NOT responsive to hormone. I was diagnosed at Stage 1, my margins were clear. My tumor was at the far back of the breast, 2 centimeters in size. 15 lymph nodes were removed and not one of them had any indication of cancer.
My problem is this: Half of my left hand has been numb for about a month now. It's numb & tingly in my pinky & ring finger, and the part of the hand just below those two fingers. I often drop things when I pick them up with my left hand. I also have a hard time typing like normal because those fingers are numb and don't want to move like normal. In retrospect, it seems I've been having more headaches lately. In addition, I seem to be more forgetful and "scatterbrained" lately.
The places my type of cancer can metasticize to are brain, bone, liver, spine, and lungs. Given that, what are the chances that I could have a growth on my brain or spine that is causing this numbness? If there were a growth on my brain or spine, could it cause the numbness?
I do have any appointment with my Oncologist, but am hoping for some insight from your organization.
