Breast cancer and bone health: What you need to know

Being diagnosed with breast cancer can be overwhelming. There is so much information to take in—so much to think about. Understandably, the possible effects on your bones may be the last thing on your mind at a time like this. But the fact is that, once you’re diagnosed with breast cancer, you have even more reasons to think about bone health.

This booklet will help you understand why focusing on bone health is important now that you have had a breast cancer diagnosis. It will introduce you to the types of bone loss that can accompany your cancer, the tests your doctor may perform to check the health of your bones, and some of the ways you can take care of your bones.
