    • Anapol Schwartz | Attorneys at Law Schwartz THE USE OF CHEMOTHERAPY TO TREAT BREAST CANCER There are many different ways to treat breast cancer. The decision about how to treat cancer is dependent upon the type of breast cancer, the stage of the cancer, the health of the patient and the patient’s treatment goals. One of the most common ways to treat breast cancer is with chemotherapy. Chemotherapy is a term that is used a lot in reference to cancer treatment. It refers to the use of drugs that are designed to kill cancer cells. Chemotherapy (also referred to as “chemo”) treats cancer throughout the body. So, if the cancer has spread from the breast then the chemotherapy would treat the other affected areas as well.

UNDERSTANDING BREAST CANCER SYMPTOMS COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE Different Types of Breast Cancer A woman’s likelihood of surviving breast cancer is greatest when the cancer is detected early. In order for the cancer to be diagnosed and treated in the early stages, it is important for women to recognize the symptoms of breast cancer so that they can promptly visit their physi- cians and get the necessary treatment. The Lump One of the most common symptoms of breast cancer is a lump in the breast. Often, the lump is not painful and it is only detectable to the touch. That is why women are encouraged to conduct monthly self exams so that they can detect any changes in the way their breasts feel to the touch.

The proper treatment of cancer re- quires dedicated professionals who can administer proven and innovative treatments.

Research is also important so that new cancer treatments and vaccines can be developed to help treat cancer more effectively in the future. Some institutions focus on treat- ment, support or research. However, many institutions focus on all three elements of cancer care. All of these institutions, whether they are comprehensive or complimentary to other in- stitutions, have an important part to play in the way cancer, and most importantly, cancer patients and their families are treated in the United States.
