Questions to Ask Your Doctor About Breast Cancer

October is national breast cancer awareness month so schedule your annual mammogram and encourage your loved ones to do the same. Early detection can save lives, therefore be prepared to meet with your doctor by reviewing the “Questions to Ask the Doctor About Breast Cancer” series brought to you by Susan B. Komen for the Cure. The series (also available in Spanish) includes 14 topic cards that contain pertinent questions to discuss with your doctor regarding a specific breast cancer topic.

Some of the topics include:

If you Find a Lump or Change in Your Breast

  • Do I need a mammogram or ultrasound?
  • When will I receive the results of my mammogram or ultrasound?
  • What is the next step if the results are inconclusive?
  • MORE >>>>

When Breast Cancer is Diagnosed

  • What were the results of my biopsy or needle aspiration?
  • What kind of breast cancer do I have? What is the stage of my disease?  What is the size of the tumor? Has the cancer spread to my lymph nodes or other parts of my body (metastasized)?
  • What tests were done on the tumor and what were the results (i.e., estrogen and progesterone receptor status)? How do these results affect my options for treating the cancer?
  • MORE>>>>
