WHAT IS HER2+ METASTATIC BREAST CANCER?

HER2+ breast cancer is an aggressive form of cancer

Both normal cells and cancer cells have HER2 receptors. In HER2-positive (HER2+) breast cancer, cancer cells have more HER2 receptors than normal cells. Metastatic breast cancer is breast cancer that has spread outside the breast to other parts of the body.

  • Too many HER2 receptors on cancer cells make this type of cancer grow faster

What HER2-targeted treatments do
