Breast cancer follow-up after treatment

 
Follow-up appointments:
 
The aim of breast cancer monitoring is to provide answers for any treatment-related questions the patient may have, to instruct in alleviating any adverse effects of cancer treatments, and to detect any local recurrences of breast cancer at an early stage.


After the initial breast cancer treatment stage, monitoring continues at the Department of Oncology for 5 to 10 years depending on the patient's individual needs. Patients are called in for yearly examinations and/or appointments. In between follow-up appointments, the patient can always contact us via the mobile service Noona which offers a breast cancer follow-up service, or by calling the symptom helpline in matters related to breast cancer.
