Survivorship Topics

There are a lot of things to consider during and after treatment. No matter where you are in your treatment, listen to your body and have regular follow-up visits with your doctor.


Living with Metastatic Breast Cancer

Metastatic Breast Cancer (also called MBC, stage IV or advanced breast cancer) is breast cancer that has spread beyond the breast to other organs in the body (most often the bones, lungs, liver or brain). Most often, MBC develops when the cancer returns at some point after the initial breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.

In the U.S., it’s estimated that at least 154,000 people have MBC. However, it’s not common (about 6 percent) to have MBC when you are first diagnosed (called de novo Metastatic Breast Cancer).
