Key questions

Today, many women want to take an active role in participating in their treatment. CancerCare recommends that women consider the following questions to better prepare them should they face a breast cancer diagnosis:

• What kind of breast cancer do I have?

• Which treatments are available to me?

• What are the risks and benefits of those treatments?

• What is my risk that my breast cancer will come back and/or spread to another part of my body?

• Where do I go for support when I need it?
