Twelves says a common misconception in breast cancer is that with the current flood of new treatments in HER2-positive breast cancer, the issue of breast cancer overall has been largely addressed.

Christopher Twelves, MD, professor of Clinical Cancer Pharmacology and Oncology at the Leeds Institute of Cancer and Pathology, St James's Institute of Oncology, Leeds, UK, discusses the rising issue of metastatic breast cancer.

Twelves says a common misconception in breast cancer is that with the current flood of new treatments in HER2-positive breast cancer, the issue of breast cancer overall has been largely addressed. He adds that while this is not only untrue, the issue of metastatic breast cancer will become more and more of an issue as the years go on.
