NCCN Guidelines for Patients® | Stage IV Breast Cancer - page 3

While many people know about breast cancer, most patient information
focuses on early-stage breast cancers. For women with stage IV or metastatic
breast cancer, it is a challenge to find good information about their disease.
The goals of this book are to help these women understand their disease
and to tell them about tests and treatments recommended by breast cancer
experts.
The National Comprehensive Cancer Network
®
(NCCN
®
) is a not-for-profit
alliance of 25 of the world’s leading cancer centers. Experts from NCCN have
written treatment guidelines for doctors who treat stage IV breast cancer.
These treatment guidelines suggest what the best practice is for cancer care.
The information in this patient book is based on the guidelines written for
doctors.
This book focuses on stage IV breast cancer. NCCN also offers books on the
other stages of breast cancer and many other cancer types. Visit
for the full library of patient books as well as other patient
and caregiver resources.
