After Treatment Care / Follow-up

Regular scheduled visits for follow-up begin usually ¼ year after radiation therapy. Follow-up is four times per year during the first 3 years, then semiannually for years 4 and 5, thereafter yearly. A mammogram is recommended semiannually to yearly after breast conserving surgery for the first 2 years. Follow-up can be modified somewhat to suit the individual comfort level needed after cancer treatment.
