Breast Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy is typically recommended for women who have large tumors or metastatic breast cancer—cancer that has spread beyond the breast.

Timing of Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy is typically recommended after surgery and before radiation treatment. However, your doctors may recommend chemotherapy treatment before surgery to shrink the tumor. This is known as neoadjuvant chemotherapy.
