Information about breast cancer  
A great place to start learning about breast cancer is the internet. There are excellent resources available at every level of learning. It is important to remember that your search will not distinguish between good scientific safe medicine, and people who do not agree with these causes and treatments for cancer. Some are well-meaning, other seek to profit from patients seeking help.

Discuss any concerns or reading you have done with your doctor as they can often help you discern the true and trustworthy from the fraudulent.

Here are some great places to start. If you find others, please contact me so I can add to this trusted list:
