Breast Cancer – Things to Think About
Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in young women aged 15 to 34. It can be scary to think about and even scarier to face. Here are some quick, helpful tips:
- Be your own advocate. Don’t let someone dismiss your concerns due to your age. If you are worried, ask questions and find answers.
- Find a doctor who you are comfortable with. Don’t be afraid to shop around for a team who is up-to-date on all the latest techniques and treatments.
- Ask questions. Research stage, grade, and various treatment options.
- Talk to and connect with other women—those who are fighting the battle and those who are survivors. It can make the journey less lonely and more hopeful.
