Chemotherapy doubts: Male breast cancer

Hi Robert, I was diagnosed in April with stage 3 ovarian cancer. The survival rate on average for this disease is pretty low. I have found a tremendous amount of support from national advocacy groups. Really good explanations on research studies and treatment options. Same information I receive from my doctor, but within a support network that helps offer explanation and context. Just doing a quick search for you, I found a couple sites I wonder if you have accessed yet? I think you have to trust your instincts. Looks like you are seeking guidance/input/direction, which is all so good. From what you have received so far, what are you leaning towards? Looks like you are willing already to receive a wide variety of treatment options. Trust what you think is best for you. Take Care!
