Breast cancer is a devastating disease that can affect anyone, male of female, of any age or race. Sometimes, breast cancer spreads through the body when the stage of the disease is already in a very advanced stage. When this happens it’s called metastatic breast cancer, which is a stage of breast cancer many people are unaware of.
In this video, shared by The Doctors in 2014, listen to Pfizer’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. F reda Lewis-Hall, discussing metastatic breast cancer, a condition that affects nearly 250,000 Americans, most of whom are women. Dr. Lewis-Hall also talks about the common misconceptions about the disease, how the disease evolves, and what parts of the body tend to be affected the most when it spreads. When watching the video, you will also meet a cancer patient who isn’t letting her diagnosis get her down.
