Breast Cancer Chemotherapy

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

Timing of Chemotherapy for Breast Cancer

Chemotherapy for breast cancer 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.
