You need to see your doctor for a clinical examination - only after which can the confirmed diagnosis be established.
It could be either doe to the slip disc or sciatica or even possibly due to bone metastasis - the chances of which are the rarest.

Dr, I have a doubt about the stage of breast cancer my mom is having right now.
She is 51 yrs old, diagnosed with an infiltrating ductal carcinoma (scirrhous type) of her right breast.Initially there were no palpable lymph nodes( thatz the word the doctors used). She underwent a right sided modified radical mastectomy and 13 lymph nodes were removed of which 11 had metastatic cancer deposits with extracapsular spread( pathologist report).The mastectomy specimen showed two tumour foci, one measuring 2.5x2x2 cm in upper outer quadrant and the other measuring 1.5x1.5x1cm in the central quadrant and both were grade 2 infiltrating ductal carcinoma ( pathologist report).
Her pre-op workup including bone scan,ct chest and lungs,ultrasound of pelvis and abdomen and chest xrays showed no tumor deposits.She is her2neu negative and er/pr positive.her ca125 level and cea levels were normal.
What is the stage of her breast cancer and what is the average survival rate according to her stage??
