What is Metaplastic Breast Cancer (MpBC)

What is Metaplastic Breast Cancer (MpBC)?

Metaplastic Breast Cancer, or MpBC, was first recognized in 2000 as a distinct sub-type of breast cancer. It is generally believed to represent 1% or less of all breast cancer cases. Most of the time these breast cancers are also triple negative, which means that they are ER / PR negative and HER2 neutral, another rare diagnosis group. Due to the rarity of Metaplastic Breast Cancer, there have been few studies or clinical trials relating to study Metaplastic Breast Cancer.

Recommend Knowledgeable Doctors

If you have a medical oncologist, radiation oncologist or surgeon, who is familiar with metaplastic breast cancer and who you feel gave you great care, please help us connect to them!  Send or bring the letter found here that requests permission to list your doctor on the Knowledgeable Doctors page of the MpBC Global Alliance website. If you would rather have us contact your doctor, please email their name and address to us at admin@mpbcalliance.org and we will contact them directly.

Help us build our list of knowledgeable doctors, so that we can help other members of our group find a doctor who has experience with MpBC.  This will also allow doctors to connect with other professionals who are interested in MpBC.
