Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in women (excluding skin cancers) worldwide, surpassing lung cancer. Moreover, the prevalence of patients living with metastatic breast cancer, (MBC), also called stage IV disease, is increasing, mostly owing to new treatment options that improve survival.
