I have stage 3C as well. Yes, it is extremely important that you get treated! Stage 3C has extensive lymph node involvement. Our stage is one step from stage 4 and could easily turn into 4 if left untreated. Stage four is when breast cancer metastasizes (spreads) to other organs, such as bones, liver, brain, lungs, etc. I'm not trying to scare you but I want you to be one of the survivors! Please get treated. Some people say the treatments are worse than the disease. Not true in my opinion. Sure, the treatments don't make you feel good....BUT it doable! And you want to live!
Yes very serious. I was stage I and didn't hesitate to start my treatments. I'm cancer free but still having radiation just in case. A rough 6 months past, but I'm looking forward and excited to be a survivor and help others .
Yes it is very serious. I am a stage 3 also. Without treatment, the cancer will spread to other organs1
