Even after treatment, your healthcare provider will want to watch your health closely. See your healthcare provider as directed. You may be asked to come in twice a year, or more often. Other members of your healthcare team will also want to see you. At these visits, report any changes in your breasts or problems with your general health.
Your healthcare provider will tell you how often to have mammograms. During your appointment, extra X-rays may be taken. MRIs may be done along with your mammograms. There is no need for concern. This is common after treatment for breast cancer.
Become familiar with how your breast and chest area look and feel. If you’ve had breast surgery or treatment, your breasts, chest, and maybe your armpit probably look and feel different. Ask your healthcare provider what changes are normal and what to look for. Remember to check:
Both the left and right side of the chest
The skin over the chest wall
Any cuts (incisions) or scars
Above and below the collarbone
The entire chest wall, down to the bottom of the ribs
