Stage IV Breast Cancer

Stage IV, or metastatic, breast cancer, characterizes breast cancer cells that have spread from the breast and/or axillary lymph nodes to other parts of the body. The most common sites of metastatic breast cancer are bone, liver, lungs, and brain.

While metastatic breast cancer may never completely go away, there are treatments that can keep it under control for a number of years. It is important to establish care with a medical oncologist who can tailor treatments to your specific type of breast cancer. In addition, there are a number of promising clinical trials at Texas Oncology for women with metastatic breast cancer from which you may benefit. Many women live an active life while undergoing treatment for metastatic breast cancer.
