A diagnosis of HER2-positive breast cancer can be frightening at first, especially when you hear the words “aggressive cancer.” But there’s reason to be optimistic about today’s advances in treatment. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach, but with the help of your doctors, you can choose what’s best for you.
Your Treatment Is Unique
HER2-positive breast cancer is different from other breast cancer types, so your treatment won’t necessarily be the same as someone else who has a different form of breast cancer. It may also be different than another HER2-positive patient’s therapy.
