One of the most important ways to find some comfort and feel a sense of control after being diagnosed with breast cancer is to educate yourself and get answers to your questions. We suggest beginning your education at Tanner's Health Library right here on Tanner's Web site.
There are hundreds of Web sites to choose from, and it is easy to become overwhelmed with the volume of information sources on the Internet. The following online resources may assist you as you begin to seek answers to your questions. Please contact a Patient Navigator if you need help finding more specialized Web sites focusing on particular subtopics (i.e. pregnancy, survivorship, support groups, children, prostheses, clothing, hair care and makeup, clinical trials, sexuality, ethnicity, complementary and alternative medicine, etc.).
Please remember to never substitute generalized information found on the World Wide Web for seeing your physician or for asking your physician about your specific personal concerns.
