Healthy lifestyle, population-based screening mammography and modern medical-oncological treatment in specialized breast cancer centers are the basic elements of the fight against breast cancer mortality. Treatment plan for the individual patient should be recommended by multidisciplinary oncoteam before initiating definitive therapy. Strategy of the medical-oncological therapy of breast cancer is determined by the biological features and stage of the tumor. The most important biological features are endocrine sensitivity, Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2 status and proliferative capability of the tumor. In this review the strategy of medical-oncological treatment (chemotherapy, endocrine therapy, targeted biological therapy) of breast cancer is presented, based on receptor status and proliferative capability of the tumor in various stages of the disease.

Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.
A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)
Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.
Tumors or cancer of the human BREAST.
