Stages I and II Breast Cancer, Version 1.2014
Follow-up care is important. It is done
to assess your general health, find new
breast tumors early, and check for side
effects of treatment. You may still be
taking trastuzumab or hormone therapy
when follow-up care starts.
Assessing treatment outcomes
Medical history and physical exam
A medical history and physical exam are
recommended every 4 to 6 months for 5 years. If
test results are normal for 5 years, you should then
have these tests every year. During your visit with
your doctor, tell him or her about any new or worse
symptoms you have. There may be ways to get relief.
For more information about these tests, see page 10.
Mammography is recommended every year. The use
of breast MRI is an option if you have a high risk for
cancer in the other breast. More information about
these imaging tests can be found on page 12. If the
breast cancer returns, read Part 8.
