More women are diagnosed with breast cancer than any other type of cancer besides skin cancer. When the cancer is found early, and only in the breast tissue, survival rates are high. If the diagnosis is metastatic breast cancer, there is no cure. On The Point, we hear about the different kinds of breast cancer, treatment options for metastatic breast cancer, and we talk with women living with the disease.
