Breast cancer: First ask the toughest one of all and that is what are her chances of survival for the next two years. After you get that answer, you should have a good idea what to ask next.

Specialist questions: First and foremost, what is the cell type of the breast cancer and has a stage of the disease been determined as yet? What Rx is recommended and what is the 5 year survival rate for each type of Rx.?What is the quality of life with the chemotherapy Rx that may be proposed and if invasive CA how effective will be the Rx.? Is the cancer estrogen or progesterone receptor positive or negative?
