Treatment for metastatic breast cancer has two goals. The first is to keep the cancer under control for as long as possible. A second, equally important treatment goal is to maintain your quality of life. This guide will help you communicate about these goals with your doctor by providing insight on:

  • What You Need to Know to Discuss Treatment Options
  • Clinical Trials and You
  • Treatment Options Available Now
  • Treatments in the Pipeline
  • What Happens Once Treatment Begins

Treatments change quickly and new types and combinations become available regularly, so always talk with your doctor about what you read here or elsewhere.
