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.

Who Are We?

Metaplastic Breast Cancer- A Rare Disease

Metaplastic Breast Cancer is known to be extremely rare, although new diagnostic techniques may be identifying it more frequently.  Management algorithms for invasive & non-invasive ductal and lobular breast carcinomas are well-established, but rare histologic types of primary breast cancers, like MpBC, are not represented in practice guidelines & present many challenges.
