WHAT IS THE RIGHT BREAST CANCER TREATMENT FOR YOU?

Targeted therapy. This type of treatment attacks specific abnormalities in cancer cells. For example, the drugs trastuzumab (Herceptin) and Pertuzumab (Perjeta) are now routinely given to women with breast cancer cells that test positive for a protein called HER2. Breast cancers with too much of this protein tend to grow and spread aggressively. Trastuzumab and Pertuzumab help slow and stop this growth.
