which treatment useful for breast cancer?
hi, surgery and chemotherapy.
 
Invasive breast cancer. How serioursly this is? Is the opetation best way? What's the full recovered rate? Is chemotherapy need after surgery? Many thanks?
Invasive Breast Cancer is very serious and needs surgery to remove the tumor and chemo as well as radiotherapy. The Oncologists need to do something called 'Staging' where they determine how far the caner has spread around the body and how bad it is in the breast. That Staging process will tell you what the recovery rates are. Lower the stage.. the better the response to therapy. Hope this helps.
