Breast Cancer Surgery



​Your follow-up care is an important part of your recovery. It will be unique to you and will depend on your diagnosis, surgery, and health. Make sure you know when your follow-up appointments are with your surgeon and other members of your healthcare team.

You may need more treatment after your surgery. This will depend on the stage, grade or type of cancer you have. Your healthcare team may recommend treatment such as chemotherapy, radiation treatment, hormone therapy, or biological therapy.

Depending on where you live, you may be able to get some or all of your treatment and other supports close to home. Talk to your healthcare team to find out your options.

If you have any questions, always write them down and bring them to your appointments.​​
