After you have been diagnosed with primary breast cancer, your specialist team will discuss your treatment options with you and their possible side effects. These pages can help support you with more information about your treatment options.
Find out about hormone therapy, why it's given and what side effects you might experience.
Find out about targeted therapies, the drugs that block the growth and spread of cancer.
Bisphosphonates may be used as part of your treatment to reduce the risk of primary breast cancer spreading and your bones weakening or breaking.
I had never known anyone who had been diagnosed. I felt clueless and panicked. I started searching around on the internet and came across Breast Cancer Care's information. I called their Helpline, who were amazingly helpful, and listened to all of my concerns.
