An Introduction to Breast Cancer Symptoms & Diagnosis

Dr. Elizabeth Comen Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

SurvivorNet is designed for patients who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and their loved ones. Early stage breast cancer is extremely common today – and as much as this is a hard diagnosis to digest, there is good news to consider as well. There is so much science and research focused on breast cancer that every year new treatments and drugs become available.

This website will give you the information you need, backed up with science and information from leading doctors in the field. It is prepared and presented with you, the patient, in mind – and it has been developed not only by doctors, but by women who have experienced receiving a diagnosis and many of the treatments presented.
