Successful treatment of your cancer is the first step toward a healthy future. Now you can begin a follow-up program. This lifelong program should include visits to your healthcare provider, regular mammograms, and knowing how your chest/breast normally looks and feels so you can notice any changes right away. Maintaining each part of this program will help give you peace of mind as you begin your life after treatment.
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. 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. There is no need for concern. This is common after treatment for breast cancer.
