While surgery is often considered the initial or primary treatment for Breast Cancer, additional treatment with systemic chemotherapy or hormonal agents is often necessary or recommended.
There are many different types of systemic therapy and recommendations for therapy are individualized for each patient.
For more information on treatment of breast cancer, please visit the Breast Cancer section of the Health Information Center.
For patients receiving chemotherapy or radiation therapy, Emmi® programs help you and your loved ones make sense of vital health information. These multimedia programs explain what to expect before, during and after your procedure or treatment. Emmi Solutions developed these programs with the assistance and expertise of the American Cancer Society.
