When confronted by breast cancer, many women feel overwhelmed by vast amounts of information, and terrified by the burden of having to make critical decisions quickly. The terms used by doctors to describe breast cancer diagnosis and treatment can sound like a foreign language. And there just isn’t enough time to figure out the meaning and pronunciation, when today’s average doctor’s visit is less than 10 minutes.
Breastcancer.org has created an innovative tool to address this problem. This dictionary is a compilation of numerous complex breast cancer terms defined in plain English.
This program was developed by Breastcancer.org™, and is sponsored in part by an unrestricted educational grant from Bristol-Myers Squibb Oncology, and launched in partnership with Lifetime Television.
