It is my understanding that your treatment/surgeries don't reduce the stage of cancer. Staging is based on the size of tumor and if it has spread to lymph nodes or other areas of the body. There is a great video on the learn section of this site. I was stage 2 and 10 years later I still I have a "history" of stage 2 bc. Let us know what your doctor's answer is. Keep the questions coming! We are here for you!
