Different treatment options and sequences are considered for each stage of breast cancer. The charts below are designed to give you an idea of the treatments your doctor may recommend for you once the stage of breast cancer you have has been determined. These treatment plans are not exact -- your own treatment plan may be different, depending on your specific situation.
In the following pages, read about what you can generally expect from each stage:
- Stage 0
- Stage IA and IB
- Stage IIA and IIB
- Stage IIIA and Operable IIIC
- Stage IIIB and Inoperable IIIC
- Stage IV
For help understanding your diagnosis and treatment options, you can also use My Breast Cancer Coach. My Breast Cancer Coach is a questionnaire designed to help you better understand your type of breast cancer so you can focus on the information that's most relevant to you.
