A female asked:
A 34-year-old member asked:
It depends: Surgery is the first step. Either lumpectomy or mastectomy depending on several factors. Radiation is used mostly after lumpectomy in stage 1 patients. Chemo hormone blockers, both or additionally Herceptin (trastuzumab) can be used depending on the pathology results. It sounds complicated but will be explained by your physician in detail.
A 29-year-old male asked:
Similar: Both have oxaliplatin. Fol fox uses a 5-fu infusion and leucovorin. Capeiox uses capecitibine called xeloda (capecitabine). This pill is changed in tumors to 5-fu. Both are effective, but some insurances prefer the cheaper folfox.
