Time and again we hear from women diagnosed with breast cancer that it is important for them to feel like they have control over the care and treatment they receive.
For many women, the first step in taking charge of their care is finding the right team of doctors. It is vital that women feel comfortable with the various members of their medical team – both with the level of care they provide AND the with their bedside manner. It is equally important that women feel comfortable asking their doctors questions and that they are satisfied with the answers they receive.
Many women find it helpful to bring a list of questions to their medical consultations and subsequent visits. Below is a list of suggested questions compiled by the women on the TNBC Discussion Boards. We hope you will find it useful. Please feel free to suggest additional questions for us to add to the list.
