What are the survival statistics of metastatic breast cancer?
In general, women have more treatment options if their breast cancer is detected early, and their chances of survival are greater. However, this does not mean that women with metastatic breast cancer do not survive. Many breast cancer mental health professionals recommend that women avoid survival statistics. This is because treatment options are constantly being expanded and statistics are old by the time they are reported. However the American Cancer Society website provides some basic statistics.
