Breast Cancer Treatment Information

Standard Treatments for Breast Cancer

There are several standard treatments for breast cancer, including surgery, chemotherapy, radiation and drug therapy. Depending on the size and location of the tumor, and how advanced it is, a doctor will usually recommend some combination of these treatments. The various treatment options can often lead to difficult decisions. Some patients want to kill the cancer at all costs. Others may choose a less aggressive approach, as they feel intimidated by radical treatments. Talk candidly with your doctor about the effects and risks of all of your treatment options. You will need to fully understand and commit to the treatment option you and your doctor agree on. Getting a second opinion can sometimes make the choice easier.
