MBC Full Form stands for Metastatic Breast Cancer which is a type of breast cancer that can spreads to another part of body such as liver, brain, bones or lungs. This is also known as a type of stage IV cancer. This metastatic tumor formed in the other place of our body by the cell of breast cancer.
In this type of cancer the cell breaks down from the original tumor and then it travels to the other parts. It can be transmitted to the body through bloodstream or through the lymphatic system. And, nearly 30% of women those who are diagnosed with breast cancer in early stage have chances to develop metastatic disease. Some women were not diagnosed before it spread to another part of the body.

Metastatic disease is NOT hopeless and one should be cautions enough to take care. Many patients continue their productive life with breast cancer in this stage. Moreover, there is various kind of treatment and also new medicines are being tasted.
