What is Newly-diagnosed vs Recurrent Breast Cancer?

Recurrent breast cancer means that you were diagnosed with cancer in the past and got treatment that removed it (e.g. surgery, radiation, systemic therapy) . If your cancer has come back again in the same place or other locations of your body, this means you have recurrent disease. If this is the first time you found out about this cancer, then you are considered newly-diagnosed, even if your breast cancer has spread to other parts of your body.
