Cancer in right breast

On 9th of December my sister went under an operation for removal of a lump in her right breast. Today, on 9th of January we got reports for the slides and blocks given by the surgeon. The doctors said that it is cancer. We don't know how to proceed. Stage of cancer is still unknown. Should we seek help from other countries? Or is it possible to get a cure from cancer cells in India ?
