My mother had fluid in her lungs, and she was told that there were cancer cells in the fluid. The surgeon did the biopsy of a tumor that was in her breast, said it cancerous, and her doctor diagnosed her with Stage IV Breast Cancer. My mother received two courses of chemotherapy (one day every 3 weeks). Her lungs filled with fluid again, but this time when the fluid was tested, there were no cancer cells in the fluid. What does this mean, if anything?

I've actually never heard of that before myself....I think the best person to ask would be for your mother to ask her oncologist perhaps?

I had fluid in my lungs and my doctor asked me to get checked for breast cancer. Well isn't it a good thing if there is no cancer in the fluid? Keep going for follow up check ups though.
