Finding Breast Cancer Web Sites
Breast Cancer Web Sites Are No Substitute for Doctors
Breast cancer Web sites can give you a lot of great information, and can help you understand the terminology you may hear at the doctor's office or on the news. But online breast cancer information should never take the place of a doctor's advice. Collect as much information as you like, but be sure to have a candid, face-to-face conversation with your doctor before deciding on screening or treatment options. Your doctor knows you and your particular circumstances. Many factors differ in every woman and these can influence treatment and screening recommendations. If you're not comfortable with your doctor's advice, get a second opinion. Web sites are a wonderful resource, but they are no substitute for the knowledge of a trained medical professional.
