My daughter has been told she has a cyst which was asperated a year ago. Now she is being sent for a 2nd mamography because she was told the cyst is still there and she is a stage 4. She also has a history of uterine cancer. Can you please tell me specifically what stage 4 means to her. Thank you very much.
I'm not sure that I can answer based on the information provided. Cysts are generally benign. If there is a persistent cyst present, perhaps it's not really a cyst, but I don't understand how that makes her stage 4. I would request that you resubmit your question with more details so that we can provide appropriate answers.
