Welcome to Ask Our Nurses about secondary breast cancer area!
Welcome to the Ask Our Nurses area where you can ask any question or concern directly to our team of expert nurses. Whatever your concern about secondary breast cancer you can use this board to ask questions, from treatment options, coping with side effects, talking to those close to you. No question is too big or too small. You may want to clarify information you’ve been given by your oncology team or find out about accessing clinical trials. We’re here for you.
To ask a question, simply start a new thread and give as much information as you’re comfortable with. Having more detail about you helps our nurses to be more specific in their response. For help with how to start a new thread, see our How to guide. We’ll aim to reply to the thread within 24 hours. NEW threads started after 3pm will be looked at the day after. Threads started over the weekend will be responded to the following Monday.
If you’d like to discuss things more privately you can email our nurses or phone our free, confidential Helpline. The number is 0808 800 6000. Our opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am to 4pm and 9am to 1pm on Saturday. Out of hours you can leave a message and we will call you back when we next open.
