are there ways to treat breast cancer besides chemo?

Yes, but it depends: Every woman's breast cancer is unique to her. Because of that, treatment for each cancer is individualized -- some cancers require surgery, others need more help in terms of removing lymph nodes, receiving medicine to kill cancer cells (chemotherapy), or x-rays to kill cancer cells (radiation therapy). There are other new techniques that are not standard. Your doctor recommends the best for you
