    Will people treat me differently because I have breast cancer?

    At first, others may treat you differently. They may become morose, be overly concerned and solicitous or think it is too horrible even to mention. Your illness may make other people uncomfortable, so that they may not be able to treat you normally. This will not last for long. As you adapt to your illness, so too will they.
