About Metastatic Breast Cancer
Breast cancer forms in tissues of the breast, usually the ducts (tubes that carry milk to the nipple) and lobules (glands that make milk). It occurs in both men and women, although male breast cancer is rare. Metastatic breast cancer (also called stage IV or advanced breast cancer) is breast cancer that has spread beyond the breast to other organs in the body (most often bones, brain, liver or lungs). Although metastatic breast cancer has spread to another part of the body, it is still considered and still receives the same treatment as breast cancer. Metastatic breast cancer cannot be cured, but today more women and men are living longer, meaningful and productive lives. Treatment focuses on length and quality of life.
Metastatic breast cancer often appears months or years after completing treatment for early or locally advanced (stages I, II or III) breast cancer. Only about 5% of breast cancers are metastatic when initially diagnosed.
