  • How big is the tumor?
  • How malignant is the tumor?
  • How much of the breast must be removed?
  • What treatment options are there for this kind of tumor?
  • What side effects can I expect from the therapy? When do they begin? How long do they last?
  • What are the chances of recovery?
  • How long is the hospital stay?
  • How can I contribute to successful treatment? What should I watch out for after the operation?
