What Is Metastatic Breast Cancer? Doctors Explain the Advanced Form of the Disease

  What Is Metastatic Breast Cancer? Doctors Explain the Advanced Form of the Disease Up to 30% of patients with early-stage breast cancer will go on to develop a metastatic form of the disease—here's what to know.That's not supposed to be a scary statement. Thanks to incredible advancements in treatment over the course of decades, most people are able to successfully treat their breast cancer and never look back. The exception here is with a diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer—either as an initial diagnosis or a subsequent one following an earlier diagnosis.

One study recently showed that a particular kind of tea may prevent the formation of painful kidney stones. Now, a new study suggests that tea may offer some protection against a type of cancer that affects nearly 200,000 new patients every year.

Even when the researchers factored in age and lifestyle, regular tea drinking showed the same effect. "In conclusion," the researchers report, "among tea drinkers, there was a small positive association between drinking tea and a reduced risk of prostate cancer."

They note that their findings aren't quite overwhelming enough for men who don't drink tea to fire up the kettle.

However, with September as National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, this may be a good reminder to go for your annual checkup. It might also be promising to hear that if you're already a tea drinker, it's possible you're taking in advantageous levels of antioxidants and other nutrients—not to mention the extra hydration from that cup that helps keeps the body's systems in balance.
