How can you find a specialist to treat your breast cancer?

ANSWER

Your primary care doctor can refer you to a specialist to treat your breast cancer. You can also get the names of specialists from a medical society, your local hospitals, and medical schools. In addition, the American Board of Medical Specialties publishes "The Official ABMS Directory of Board Certified Medical Specialists." This publication lists a specialist's name, education, and specialty field. The directory can be purchased, but it is also available at no charge through www.abms.org or at most public libraries.
