General view

Global mortality rates for breast cancer have been steadily decreasing in the last few years. A combination of earlier diagnoses and more effective treatments, have led to a substantial increase in the number of women successfully treated.

Developments in the way breast cancer is diagnosed, with biomarkers that can predict the patient's response to the different therapies, allow doctors to choose the best treatment(s) for each individual (creating personalized therapies).

In this section we will provide an overview of the treatments currently used for breast cancer, as well as those under research. The aim is to familiarize patients with the varied mechanisms used to control the disease. 

In this way, patients will have more information when deciding what treatment to follow. If any doubts or fears persist, talk with your oncologist. 

Your doctors are there to help you.
