Abstract

Survivors of breast cancer are confronted with a plethora of cancer treatment-related long-term symptoms, the most common being fatigue, hot flashes, sexual dysfunction, arthralgias, neuropathy, and cognitive dysfunction. Survivors of breast cancer also face cancer treatment-related disease states, such as osteoporosis, cardiac dysfunction, obesity, infertility, and secondary cancers. Evidence-based recommendations for screening, prevention, and early intervention should be implemented to improve quality of life and decrease comorbidities in this population.
