Health after breast cancer

Staying healthy is an important priority for women after treatment for breast cancer. Once treatment is over, you won’t be seeing health professionals as regularly as you were during treatment. This doesn’t mean you can’t seek advice or ask for help when you need it. No health problem is too small or too large to ask about. Usually something can be done to lessen side effects and improve your wellbeing. See your GP if you have side effects that are concerning you.

This section provides information about some of the longer term side effects of common treatments for early breast cancer and how to manage them. It also includes information about ways to stay healthy and improve wellbeing, with tips on diet and exercise after breast cancer.
