Campaign focus: Care After Breast Cancer
It shouldn’t end with treatment
We are campaigning to improve the support received by breast cancer patients at the end of treatment.
We know that treatment for primary breast cancer can have a lasting impact on physical and emotional wellbeing with side effects including anxiety, constant pain and relentless fatigue.
Our latest research reveals:
- Just under half (46%) of women with breast cancer are not told about possible long-term effects of the disease and its treatment.
- Over half (55%) of women are not given any information about the signs and symptoms of the cancer returning.
- Two fifths (41%) of women don’t receive the support they need from a healthcare professional to manage the long-term effects of breast cancer.
