We know that after a diagnosis there are far more questions than answers, which is why we endeavor to bring you only the best information from leading breast cancer experts. From videos, to articles, to survivor stories, Breast Cancer Answers works to utilize a variety of resources to provide informative, relevant answers to your breast cancer questions.
We encourage you to search our site for answers to your questions. If your question is still unanswered, simply use the “Ask Us” form on the right side of this page, and we will contact leading breast cancer experts for an answer. Please keep in mind that our experts cannot answer case-specific questions.
With a dedication to excellence, we work with some of the leading breast cancer organizations, such as the American Cancer Society, Komen, Dr. Susan Love Foundation Act with Love, American Society of Breast Surgeons, National Consortium of Breast Centers, Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, Stand Up To Cancer, CDC, WHO, and more.
But, serving as a resource, as well as providing valuable information, are only parts of our aim. We also seek to foster a sense of community for breast cancer patients and loved ones through our Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ pages.
If you’re a leading expert in breast cancer and are interested in answering patient questions, please contact us at BreastCancerQA@gmail.com.
Breast Cancer Answers, alongside our affiliates Colon Cancer Answers and Prostate Cancer Live, strives to be a resource for breast cancer patients in all stages of the journey, from prevention to remission, and every step in between.
