A question asked by hghsghl: when Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy is used in breast cancer treatment in advanced stages only or early or both?

My chosen answer:

I don’t know what you mean by “neoadjuvant” chemo. Chemo is used when the size and type of the tumor call for it.

Here is a link to breast cancer staging and treatment. Don’t forget to turn the pages. It is important to ask the oncologist what are the statistics on how many women survive at that stage with chemo and how many women survive at that stage who refuse chemo. Sometimes it is not a very big difference. Sometimes only 1% more survive who do the chemo…5 years later. But the figures are different for different stages and types of cancers.
