Being tested for breast cancer?


Welcome to Be the Choice Treatment Decision Tool (the Decision Trees)

United in our concern that all people who receive a diagnosis of breast cancer should have access to comprehensive, state-of-the-art treatment information in a comfortable and user-friendly format, we designed this interactive treatment decision tool.

How to use:

This tool will enable you to get to know the “big picture” as well as the “individual picture” behind any breast cancer treatment decision, and to become an active participant in determining your own treatment process. You are the ultimate decision-maker in this process in consultation with your medical team. We hope that you will use the information on this website to inform and empower yourself.

What this tool is not designed to do is deliver individual treatment recommendations. This tool should only be used as a way to get a sense of the range of treatments available to you as well as what your own treatment plan might look like given your unique profile. This tool is for informational purposes only and should not be taken as medical advice. You should not rely on this information as a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment and using this tool does not create a physician-patient relationship between the team at Be the Choice and you. If you have any questions or concerns about your diagnosis, treatment options or the information you obtain from this tool, you  should always consult with your medical team.
