Speaking Up With Your Doctor
It's important that you have a voice in the conversation when it comes to deciding on a treatment for your mBC. While your doctor knows what treatment options are appropriate from a medical perspective, you know best what's important to you. The first treatment that you have for mBC can influence the treatment options that come later, so it’s important to discuss your wishes and needs upfront. Working together, you and your doctor can come up with the most appropriate treatment plan for you, so join in the discussion sooner rather than later.
There are several factors that your doctor will consider when determining your treatment options, such as what subtype of mBC you have and whether or not you have a genetic mutation. You can learn more about these factors on this website and we can provide you with a discussion guide to help you have the important conversations with your doctor.
