March 30, 2007, Newsletter Issue #59: Standard Treatments for Breast Cancer

Tip of the Week

After you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, your doctor will outline the treatment choices that are available to you. These standard treatment choices are specific for every person diagnosed, and will depend on where the tumor is located within the breast, the size of the tumor, and how far the cancer has progressed. The less invasive breast cancers can be treated by surgery, however it is typical for the physician to suggest a treatment of surgery, medication, chemotherapy, radiation, or a combination of any of these methods. Breast cancer patients may face difficult decisions about the extent and duration of the treatment that will take place.

After being informed of the treatment options available for your breast cancer, it is important to discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor before deciding the treatment that is right for you. It is important to remember as a patient, you should fully understand the treatment option you choose. Even if this means receiving a second opinion on which breast cancer treatment option to choose.
