The Best Informational Website for Breast Cancer (Breast Cancer 101).
Is your doctor talking and you can't figure out a word he/she says????? Do your eyes snap back into your head every time a doctor tries to explain your pathology report??? Estrogen Receptors, Progesterone Receptors, Her 2 neu, FISH testing?????? Not to worry!!! This is the best informational website if you have been diagnosed with breast cancer. I always suggest it to my patients, especially those who have been recently diagnosed.
This Komen slideshow or module covers everything from the anatomy of the breast to what all of those hieroglyphics mean on your pathology report. You can cover one topic at a time or sit down for awhile and do the whole module all at once. Easy to repeat. Easy to find your way back to the topic you were on. Good diagrams. Interactive. Very helpful.
The link above brings you right to Breast Cancer 101. But if you click on the "M" (menu) button at the top of the screen, it will give you a choice of topics to pick from.
Hope it helps!!
