Stage 3 – locally advanced breast cancer

The cancer has spread from the breast to lymph nodes close to the breast or to the skin of the breast or to the chest wall.

Stage 4 – metastatic breast cancer

The cancer has spread to other parts of the body.

Breast cancer grades

The grade describes how the cancer cells look under a microscope, whether or not they are similar or very different to normal cells.

Low grade (grade 1)

The cells look similar to normal breast cells and are slow growing, which tends to lead to a good prognosis.
