Balancing Act: Treatment Choices and Side Effects in Metastatic Breast Cancer
There are many treatment options for metastatic breast cancer, including clinical trials. How do you and your care team balance how well the treatment works with how its side effects impact your daily life?
This panel discussion, featuring a medical oncologist and people living with metastatic disease, explores how you and your doctor talk about options and weigh possible risks and benefits of treatment. We’ll also discuss how your priorities and approach may change when you need to move on to new treatments. Our panelists will share how they viewed their treatment options over time, including if, and how, they thought about whether to stop treatment.
As part of this program, you will have an opportunity to ask questions on this topic during a live Q&A.
