No one would like to think someone would try to dishonestly profit from a disease like breast cancer. However, there are possible scams being showcased on "innocent appearing" breast cancer Web sites. Finding breast cancer information Web sites might lead you to read about a new breast cancer medication or treatment at a Web site that claims to sell it, for example. Be wary of what you find, just because something is on the Internet does not always mean it is true. Before purchasing any product or new treatment method, talk to your doctor about it, and discover if it is actually a viable treatment option. Your doctor will be able to prescribe it for you or tell you where to get it safely.
