What is MBC?
Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC), also called advanced breast cancer (ABC) and secondary breast cancer, means that the cancer has spread from where it started in the breast to other parts of the body. It is also referred to as stage IV breast cancer. Women with Metastatic Breast Cancer face different challenges compared to women with earlier stages of breast cancer and today many of their needs are unmet and not well understood. For this reason EUROPA DONNA - The European Breast Cancer Coalition has made MBC a priority for its advocacy activities and conducts annual courses for metastatic breast cancer advocates.
