National Comprehensive Cancer Network provides one of the most critical and helpful resources to breast cancer patients. Their patient-centered Professional Guidelines provide the most up to date information about best practices for breast cancer screening, risk assesment, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care.
If you're a newly diagnosed patient, NCCN's Guidelines are a critical resource in understanding what diagnostic tests you may need and what kinds of treatment are most recommended for your type of breast cancer. Its an enormously helpful tool in helping you make decisions about surgery, chemotherapy/hormonal therapy, and radiation therapy.
Take the time to check out the guidelines and share the link with others. Mention this resource to your oncologist, too.
