Secondary breast cancer mets to lungs

Hello, I am 39 years old and was diagnosed de nova back in October 2022 with mets to my lungs, I am triple positive and was just wondering if anyone else has them in the lungs and how you are all getting on? I’m currently on PHESGO and tamoxifen.

Thank you

Hi disney1985, I was diagnosed last June de novo with pulmonary nodules. HER2+. I’m on Enhertu and pertuzumab.
Were your nodules biopsied?

Hi no mine were never biopsied, were yours? They just said they were and I was treated with paxlitaxol, tamoxifen and phesgo x

Mine were not biopsied either, said suspicious. My last PET scan showed no metabolic activity but there are still some nodules. Did yours all resolve? How do you find the treatment?
I generally feel well but it’s the mental part I struggle with.

My biggest was 11mm now down to 8mm and others have gone from a solid state to a liquid form (they say is good). I struggle mentally with it as have 3 young children and want to see them grow up. X

Where are you from? Did your breast lump resolve? It’s interesting to hear of others stories that a person can relate
