Metastatic Breast Cancer Definition and Symptoms

Metastatic breast cancer is when a cancer begins in the breasts and spread to other parts of the body. This happens because cancer cells break away and enter the blood stream, allowing the cancer to spread. Breast cancer most commonly spreads to the bones but can spread to any part of the body. Symptoms of breast cancer are a lump in the breast, chest wall, or armpit, a change in the size of the breast, a dimple or “pucker” in the breast, and discharge or bleeding from the nipple.
