Chemotherapy is the most primitive method for treating breast cancer, if employed immediately after surgery, termed as adjuvant chemotherapy (AC), and administered before surgery, neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) (Alvarado-Cabrero et al., 2009). Chemotherapy is recommended for all women with invasive cancer greater than 1 centimeter (Ganz et al., 2011). Adjuvant chemotherapy is associated with significantly more severe physical symptoms, including musculo-skeletal pain, vaginal and weight problems and nausea (Ganz et al., 2011).
