With so many breast cancer treatment options out there, it’s normal to be concerned that you don’t have all of the information on treatments that are available to you. Many women seek a second opinion after a breast cancer diagnosis in order to confirm their physician’s recommended treatment plan, or to seek options elsewhere. After a breast cancer diagnosis, it is important that you have an understanding of all the options available to you and that you feel empowered to make the best decision possible based on your individual needs.
Some of your concerns might include: You are experiencing side effects from your cancer treatment that are going untreated; you do not know your next steps if your current treatment doesn’t have the expected results; your family is not involved in your care; you are not receiving comprehensive treatment.
Many women find success in working with a breast cancer team – a team of doctors, nurses and other complementary practitioners who share their collective experience in order to develop the best treatment plan for you. You should be in the driver’s seat of your breast cancer treatment, by being well informed and involved in making decisions regarding your treatment. It is also important that your loved ones receive care and support while you are being treated.
