Abstract

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.
