Many patients want to learn as much as possible about their condition and therefore we are suggesting a few websites worth looking at. Patients should always keep in mind that every case is different and that not every option is appropriate for every patient.

 

Furthermore, it is important to understand that not every surgeon possesses the skills to offer every alternative. Don't be afraid to ask if you have any concerns about the options you are being offered.

 

Among the many resources available we can suggest these websites:

 

Breast Cancer Surgery

An excellent resource describing breast cancer surgery alternatives is presented by the American Cancer Society. It can be accessed at:  http://www.cancer.org/cancer/breastcancer/detailedguide/breast-cancer-treating-surgery.

 

Chemotherapy

BreastCancer.org has a great website and information on chemotherapy is well presented at:  http://www.breastcancer.org/treatment/chemotherapy

 

Radiation

The National Breast Cancer Foundation presents an overview on radiation treatment at:

http://www.nationalbreastcancer.org/breast-cancer-radiation-therapy

 

 

Breast Reconstruction

The American Cancer Society has a great presentation here: http://www.cancer.org/cancer/breastcancer/moreinformation/breastreconstructionaftermastectomy/index?sitearea

Be sure that you review all the topics covered under the various pages that follow the introduction.
