Metastatic breast cancer may develop in two ways: after stopping some cells can survive and can spread in the body, which develop other tumors or during treatment. It is often the case in which metastatic disease is diagnosed so late, when treatment is ongoing, that chances of survival become very fragile.
There are situations when other organs such as lung, liver, bones, brain and other organs may suffer abnormal structure and / or operational. It is a metastasis of breast cancer and not a new form of cancer. In this case the chances of survival are somewhat higher, generally because breast cancer has a high rate of improvement and even healing.
Three of ten patients with breast cancer subsequently develop metastatic form of breast cancer. If no other body has not been affected by metastasis, and cancer cells register a decline after the end of treatment, there is good chance of survival.
Because of its nature, breast cancer requires extensive treatment. Therapies are generally applied: chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, immune therapy combined with regular mammography, ultrasound, CT scans, MRIs, etc. To treat the whole body must be implemented systemic therapies. For treatment of specific organs are local treatments such as mastectomy and lumpectomy. Also be made and therapies to alleviate pain.
