Metastatic Breast Cancer Facts:

Metastatic breast cancer is when cancer in the breast has spread to other sites in the body, such as the liver, lungs, bones, or brain. 

An estimated 168,000 Americans are currently living with metastatic breast cancer.

About 6% of people are Stage IV from their initial diagnosis-known as de novo metastatic breast cancer. 

It is estimated that 20% to 30% of people initially diagnosed with the early-stage disease will develop metastatic breast cancer. 

Younger women, as well as men, can be diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer.
