Questions To Ask After Diagnosis

I was invited to the TODAY show for 2009 breast cancer awareness month to talk about the top questions to ask your doctor after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Here is a quick summary of what I shared with viewers:

What Stage Am I?

There are 5 stages of breast cancer, 0 through 4. Make sure you understand which stage of breast cancer you have as it greatly affects treatment options and chances of survival.

What are my treatment options?

There are 3 main treatment options for breast cancer: surgery, radiation and medications, such as chemotherapy. You have many choices within these categories – be sure to understand what your options are and why!
