    Latonya, I don't quite understand the question. If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, it is because the cells were found and identified. If you are talking about breast cancer that has metastasized to other parts of the body, there are baseline tests that would either identify those area's or be suspicious. I hope this helps, take care, Sharon

    Well my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer but they were unable to find the cancer cell to figure out what meds to give her and noone is able to explain why that is. This will be her 3rd time around with it. We have had several Drs examin the sample and thats why her case is so weird the can not find any cancer cells.
