    I am 2 1/2 years from last radiation treatment. I had no active cancer at that time, The chemo and radiation was because I was intermediate chance of recurrence. I was just diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. It's in lymph nodes, bone and neck. Please ask your oncologist to do pet scan or something 1 year after you complete treatment. I just found a lump in my neck but no other symptoms. This was not anybody's fault but I wish I had had some kind of scan to check after 1 year. Starting oral chemo in two weeks. God bless and good luck!

    I was told by both my surgeon and oncologist that should there be a reoccurrence it would be within five years.
