A breast cancer diagnosis can bring a wide range of emotions including shock, fear, sadness, and anger. The support of family, friends, and others can be helpful as you go through diagnosis, treatment, and beyond.

Some people join a support group for their emotional and psychological needs. Learn about getting social support, general support after a breast cancer diagnosis or if support groups are right for you.
