Breast Cancer and You: A guide for people living with breast cancer, Seventh Edition

If you have just been diagnosed with breast cancer, you are probably encountering a rush of emotions and questions. Why has this happened to me? What treatments are recommended? What is my prognosis? Can I be cured? What will my life be like from now on?

Coping with breast cancer begins with getting some answers to your questions. The more you understand about your diagnosis, your treatment options, and the results you can expect, the more you will be able to participate in your care.

CBCN’s seventh edition of Breast Cancer and You: A guide for people living with breast cancer is aimed to work as a handbook that can be used by you and your healthcare team as a personal resource. It includes useful information on breast cancer staging, diagnostic tests, recommended treatments for each cancer stage, possible side effects of treatment and their management, breast reconstruction options, and more.
