Here we will explain the basics of benign (non-cancer) breast conditions, diagnostic tests (such as different types of biopsies), and breast cancer. You’ll also learn more about coping with your
concerns and fears, and where to find emotional support.
The information here should not take the place of talking to your doctor or nurse. There are many details that we cannot cover here, so
in each section there’s a list of questions that you might want to discuss with your doctor and nurse.
We will explain many medical terms that you may hear during testing and diagnosis. As you learn these terms, you’ll better understand what is being said to you.
Knowing what these terms mean can help you as you talk with your health care team. We also have a Breast Cancer Dictionary
that many women and their doctors find very helpful.
