Most men have side effects during, and for a few weeks after treatment for breast cancer. But occasionally some side effects don’t go away (long-term effects), or side effects develop months or years later (late effects).
These side effects may be mild. Or they may be more troublesome and interfere with your daily life. Some may eventually go away or improve on their own. Others can usually be managed or treated successfully.
Always let your cancer doctor or specialist nurse know about side effects that don’t go away or if you have new symptoms after treatment.
