How should I take care of myself during breast cancer treatment?

ANSWER

Women are encouraged to continually reevaluate their breast cancer treatment plan and talk with their health care providers about whether treatment is helping their quality of life. During this time, women should take the best possible care of themselves by:

  • Eating right.
  • Getting enough rest.
  • Seeking out emotional support when needed.
  • Possibly making plans in the event their condition worsens.
