Loco-regional Therapy for Metastatic Breast Cancer

Posted On 2020-09-07 16:50:23

Patients with MBC can survive longer without metastatic symptoms when treated with these systemic therapies. However, MBC cannot be cured with ICI or other treatments and the majority of MBC patients will die of their disease. It is important to use all available treatments to obtain maximal control of symptoms, prevent serious complications, and prolong life with minimal disruption of daily activities and quality of life. We endeavor to use fewer powerful drugs, such as hormone therapy and oral agents, and thereby minimize severe adverse events.
