More than 200,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014. It is estimated that by 2022, the number of survivors will climb to nearly 4 million. Breast cancer survivors require regular follow-up care, some of which requires the skills of an oncologist and some of which can be provided by a primary care physician. This article looks at common conditions affecting survivors and discusses ways that oncologists and primary care physicians can work together to best serve this population.
