Treatment

Usually treatment for breast cancer begins a few weeks after a diagnosis. That gives you time to do these things:

  • Get more tests, if you need them.
  • Talk with your doctor about treatment choices.
  • Get a second opinion, if you want one.
  • Decide about treatment.
  • Make plans for your work and home-life, which may include hiring extra help while you are undergoing treatment.

Your doctor will recommend a treatment plan based on your type of cancer, its stage, hormone-sensitivity, your health and personal preferences. Most treatment plans include surgery followed by additional treatments, such as chemotherapy, hormone therapy or radiation.
