Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer amongst the women across the globe. Each year, breast cancer reports for around 12% of all cancer diagnosed globally and is the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths among women.
The development of immune therapies for cancer however, has taken off in recent times. Breast cancer is one of the main cancer types for which the new immune-based cancer treatments are currently in development. The experts are working to bring effective immune-based cancer treatment to people with breast cancer. As per the conventional treatment norms, if diagnosed early, breast cancer treatment usually involves surgery which, depending on the stage and molecular characteristics of cancer can be followed by chemotherapy, radiation therapy or targeted therapy.
A great option for breast cancer treatment is immunotherapy. This therapy uses the person’s immune system to fight the disease. It is done either by stimulating the immune system to a level that it is able to control the progression of the disease and further helps in regression as well. It strengthens the immune system and targets only the cancerous and malignant cells while protecting the normal ones. Immunotherapy preserves the taste buds and maintains the bone strength improving the quality of life meanwhile.
To explain in simple words, immunotherapy is a treatment which helps in stimulating the Immune system to fight cancer. This therapy is thought to work by slowing the growth and spread of cancer cells and by helping the immune system destroy the existing cancer cells.

How often you can have the cancer immunotherapy treatment depends on the type of immunotherapy and the type of cancer.
