Talking to an Oncologist

At a Glance

The first trip to see your oncologist can be a anxiety provoking experience.  There are a few ways to help you feel at ease for your first trip.  Try doing some background research on breast cancer.  Consider bringing a spouse or friend to help relieve some stress.  Ask about clincial trials (this could be the best treatment option for you).  It is also important to ask any question that comes to your mind, if something is unclear, ask for clarification.
