Tips for Making Treatment Decisions

Don't be afraid to get a second opinion. Your doctor is very important in this fight. You are creating a team that will help you. Find someone you want on that team. You do have choices. God bless you.

Ask your healthcare provider about clinical trial options.

Educate yourself about your diagnosis. However, don’t get online and look up “breast cancer;” it can be overwhelming.

It is important to like and trust your doctor. If you don't, find a new one.

If you are not getting your questions answered, get a second opinion.

Be as fully informed as possible.
