Metaplastic breast cancer MBC is a histological subtype of TNBC - Triple Negative Breast Cancer. This short abstract supports the previous article saying that MBC is rare - but not that rare! This is music to my ears.
Out of a group of 502 patients 4% were metaplastic. That is an increase, as we have seen figures, where on average MBC was 1% of TNBC and 0.01% of all breast cancers. Increased awareness of MBC is starting to show. I realise this is a small study but still a positive one...it mentions MBC!!
