The recommendations for follow-up care for breast cancer include regular physical examinations, mammograms, and breast self-examinations. The follow-up care may be provided by your oncologist or primary care doctor, as long as your primary care doctor has talked with your oncologist about appropriate follow-up care and the possible late effects. In addition, patients with a possible or known family history of breast cancer may want to visit a genetic counselor. Use these guideline recommendations to talk with your doctor about an appropriate follow-up care plan for you.
