In general, the 4 main catergories of treatments for breast cancer are surgery, radiation, chemotherapy and hormonal therapy.
Treatment is individualized depending on the size of the tumor, local extent of the tumor, lymph node involvement and distant spread of the tumor (these factors help to determine stage). Speak with your surgeon and oncologists and educate yourself to understand options.
