At Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center, our breast cancer specialists incorporate survivorship into each patient's overall care, so physicians and nurses in the Breast Oncology Treatment Center start helping patients become familiar with cancer survivorship even before treatment ends. This means ensuring that patients have access to survivorship services, such as fertility, sexual health, and weight management. And it means making sure that patients know about — and learn how to address — known health risks and side effects that can potentially arise from certain treatments.
Working with Dana-Farber's Adult Survivorship Program, we help women address concerns that can be unique to breast cancer survivors, including:
We recently launched a novel program designed to help every cancer survivor understand the specifics of their diagnosis and treatment plan, and based on this information, things they should consider moving forward.
Every patient in the Breast Oncology Treatment Center gets a treatment summary, so you and your doctors can quickly know what medications or therapies you received during cancer treatment. We also provide each patient with a personalized survivorship care plan, which outlines clear steps for monitoring and maintaining your health after treatment ends.
We believe that our patients should get expert survivorship care in the same way that they receive outstanding cancer care — in a comprehensive, personalized fashion.
