About this booklet
This booklet is about the possible long-term or late effects of breast cancer treatment. These are side effects that continue for 6 months or longer after treatment, or delayed side effects that develop months or years after treatment.
In this booklet, we use the term late effects to describe long-term and late effects. The booklet is for anyone who has late effects of breast cancer treatment.
The booklet describes the possible effects of treatment and how they can be improved or managed. It also includes information on positive lifestyle changes, which can help reduce the risk of developing some late effects. There is also information about coping with some of the sexual and emotional difficulties that you may experience.
