What Are the Symptoms of Metastatic Breast Cancer?

When breast cancer spreads to other parts of the body, such as the bones, brain, liver, or lungs, it is called metastatic (also referred to as advanced or stage IV). While it is not curable, metastatic breast cancer can be treatable — especially with the advent of new therapies, including biologic targeted treatments and novel drug combinations.
