Stages of Breast Cancer

Stage is a measure of the extent of breast cancer, and is based on the size of the tumor and the presence or absence of lymph node metastases and distant metastases (spread to other parts of the body). Determining the stage of breast cancer may require blood tests, chest X-rays, mammography, CT, or MRI procedures.

Breast Cancer Treatments

When breast cancer is identified during a biopsy, other tests may be performed on the specimen in order to further classify the cancer and determine the best treatment strategy. Based on the stage of the cancer and the results of these tests, a treatment plan is personalized for each individual and may involve the following breast cancer treatments.
