One Size Fits One

Breast cancer is not one disease; it varies a great deal from one person to the next. Likewise, we all come in different shapes and sizes. Most importantly, we all have different priorities and goals. Therefore, treatment needs to be individualized taking into account one’s unique biology, anatomy, and preferences. Every breast cancer patient needs to be empowered to explore all the options available to them and choose what’s right for them. That’s why it’s critical to find the right surgeon to help navigate through the transition from diagnosis to treatment. People need to listen to their inner-voice: if they are uncomfortable with their options, they need to seek out a second opinion.
