No offence but you're asking advice on a fashion forum?.

Book a doctor or get whoever checked out professionally.

Most hospitals too have walk in centres which don't require prior appointments as well.

Cancer? You mean a lump has been found.

First thing I'd suggest the person to do stop taking what's causing it (actually there's two requirements, one can be stopped/reversed).

edit (added); what exactly constitutes a tumor?

clue: what causes its biological growth (angiogenesis and vascularisation leading to mitosis). Think!

Up to 2cm is stage 1, 2cm-5cm is stage 2.

i wasn't asking for advice i was asking for information and i asked here for two reason: 1) because no one here knows who i am 2) i was sure in a forum as active as this and how common breast cancer is i'd get an answer from someone who's had a similar experience.. also i found out last night so i was still in a bit of shock
they've had it confirmed as cancerous and they are getting the ct scan and some other shit next week, and but they live abroad so i regretfully cant go with them, and they are giving me limited knowledge til they know exactly how serious it is.. fair enough reason?

If you mean 45,000 are diagnosed per year but kills only 12,000 your correct.

There's a lot of information on the internet. I can tell you the Memorial Sloan–Kettering Cancer Center (US) and The Royal Marsden are seen as leaders in within their field as you'll see their research certainly seems impressive. But where does they're expertise really lie…
