Damit für die am Mammakarzinom erkrankte Patientin die optimale Therapieentscheidung getroffen werden kann, ist es zunächst wichtig, das Mammakarzinom als systemische Erkrankung zu verstehen. Hierdurch werden auch die Therapieziele (Therapie des lokalen Tumors, Verhinderung von Rezidiv und Fernmetastasen) klar.
