Breast cancer survivors are patients who have entered the postreatment phase after the successful completion of breast cancer therapy with curative intent; longer-term endocrine therapy and/or targeted therapy may continue during survivorship care. Globally, breast cancer survival rates are increasing, creating a new generation of survivors in need of ongoing care and counseling. Evidence suggests that a significant number of people with a cancer diagnosis have unmet informational, psychosocial and physical needs which can be effectively addressed through survivorship care interventions. Survivorship care services include treatment of long-term complications, surveillance for cancer recurrence, and counseling on prevention strategies, such as lifestyle modifications. Other issues include early menopause, body image concerns, sexual health and psychosocial issues related to breast cancer and its treatment. Long-term treatment-related complications include lymphedema and other upper limb dysfunctions, pain, fatigue, insomnia and bone health concerns. Increased risk of cardiovascular complications occurs with some cancer treatments.
