Understanding the stage of breast cancer is important to your physician’s determination of which type of treatment will most benefit you.
This video reviews the stages of breast cancer and how the extent of the disease is determined by considering factors such as tumor size and invasiveness. The stages range from zero to four with subcategories in stages two and three. By the time stage four is reached, the cancer has become metastatic and spread to other parts of the body. The highest chances for successful treatment are when the cancer is in the earliest stages.
