Top 3 Questions | Conversation Guide | Maintenance Therapy | Nurse Support

Asking questions is crucial to good communication with your oncologist. If you don’t ask questions, your oncologist may assume you already know the answer or you don’t need more information. Knowing what to ask ahead of time can help your oncologist understand what’s most important to you and allow you to get the most out of your visit.

If you’ve received a HER2-positive breast cancer diagnosis, you may have questions regarding your condition, treatment options, and health risks. In this Q&A video, breast oncologist Dr. Amy Herman Comander answers some of the most common questions about HER2-positive breast cancer.

Some of the questions Dr. Comander discusses include:

  • How does your type of breast cancer (HER2-positive) affect your treatment options?
  • What does your stage of HER2-positive breast cancer mean for your prognosis and treatment options?
  • Is HER2-positive breast cancer curable?

To help you better prepare for your oncologist visit, MyBCTeam has created the interactive HER2-Positive Breast Cancer Treatment: Your Personalized Guide.

Based on your answers to the questions in the guide, you’ll receive a custom set of questions to ask your doctor regarding medication, therapy, surgery, tests, lifestyle changes, and other aspects of your treatment journey.
