Right Treatment

With the right team and the right tests, you have what you need to find the best treatment for your specific diagnosis and to access the highest quality of care. Click here to find a guide, created by the MBC Network, with advice from patients living with MBC along with guidance on treatment decisions. You can also learn about different MBC Stage IV treatment options here.

Discuss your treatment goals with your healthcare team and know all of your options at every stage of your disease. Discuss with your doctor if a targeted therapy is approved for your type of MBC.

MBC Alliance members Living Beyond Breast Cancer and MBC Network partnered to create a guide specifically for newly diagnosed patients. The Metastatic Breast Cancer Series: Guide for the Newly Diagnosed, available on this page, will give you the information and support you need to make informed decisions about your treatment and to manage your emotions during the first few months after a metastatic diagnosis.

Section 3 of the Guide explains treatment options for metastatic breast cancer.  The guide provides a summary of treatment options and a checklist of 10 questions to ask your doctor about treatments.

Consider a Clinical Trial

Depending on your diagnosis, a clinical trial may be an excellent option. Find MBC-specific clinical trials at Metastatic Trial Search and discuss them with your healthcare provider.
