As a plastic surgeon, I don't treat breast cancer. So I'm going to give you some nice references. These first five are blog posts from Dr. Sid Schwab, Surgeonsblog. They are nice discussions of breast cancer form the basics to the treatment choices. (photo)
This next one is a blog post from Buckeye Surgeon. It is the handout he gives to his new breast cancer patients to aid in his discussions with them. It, also, gives them something for later, if they are overwhelmed with information. Breast Cancer Handout
This blog post from The Cheerful Oncologist is to remind you that as a patient, and especially as a cancer patient, you have rights/freedoms. The Four Freedoms of Cancer Patients.
I also want to remind you women that some of the breast changes in our lifetime are benign (well maybe you don't consider sagging benign, but it won't kill you). So review these, please: Breast Changes During Your Lifetime That Are Not Cancer--National Cancer Institute.
The National Cancer Institute has a wealth of information at their site on the range of treatment--surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy, biological therapy, and treatment choices by stage of disease. Breast Cancer Treatment
