Being diagnosed with breast cancer is naturally very frightening for you and your family. Remember that there have been several advances in the treatment of breast cancer. Successful outcomes are common and many women live long and productive lives after treatment. Cures are possible, especially if breast cancers are found early when they are still small.
After diagnosis, you will be referred to a cancer centre where you will meet with an oncologist (a cancer specialist). He or she will review your case with you. There are many people at the cancer centre able to give you support and the information you need.
