what is metaplastic breast cancer

What is Metaplastic Breast Cancer?

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.
