Ross Mudgway, BS, University of California, Riverside School of Medicine, explains how a multidisciplinary approach as well as open discussions with the patient can help determine the best course of action for patients with metastatic breast cancer.

Mudgway says that at his center, Loma Linda University, the decision and setting for surgery depends not only on the type of breast cancer but also the discussion between the whole oncology team and the patient. The team will consider how it can both improve the disease, as well as the patient’s quality of life.
