Supporting and navigating you through treatment

A breast cancer diagnosis can seem overwhelming at first. In addition to facing decisions about treatments, you're probably wondering how your cancer will affect your life and your loved ones. That's why we pair each of our patients with an experienced nurse navigator to help you:

  • Coordinate your care.
  • Understand your diagnosis, prognosis and treatment options.
  • Connect you with information and support services.
  • Offer advice for dealing with symptoms and potential lifestyle changes associated with your condition.

We can also connect you and your family with a social worker, who can talk to you about financial matters and offer access to support services at Tufts MC and in your community.
