When breast cancer is diagnosed and treated early it is potentially curable
Early breast cancer (eBC):
Cancer that is confined to the breast i.e. it has not ‘metastasised’ or spread to other distant parts of the body.
The majority of breast cancer cases are diagnosed at an early stage of the disease.
Treating people with breast cancer early, before the cancer has spread, may offer the best chance of preventing the disease from returning or reaching an advanced, incurable stage.
