This book discusses the impact on women of the diagnosis and treatment of early breast cancer. Readers will learn about the risks of breast cancer recurrence and interventions to reduce these, such as endocrine therapy and bisphosphonate therapy, as well as the role of lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise. The long-term effects of treatment on fertility, the heart and other systems are discussed, as well the  psychological burden for women who are increasingly likely to be cured from their cancer.  Each chapter provides background and a  practical guide in the management of women after the initial phase of diagnosis and treatment.

Authored by a multidisciplinary team this book provides all the relevant expertise as well as different perspectives, providing a holistic picture of early breast cancer consequences.

From oncologists to general practitioners as well as specialist nurses, gynaecologists, psychologists and other healthcare professionals  involved in the long-term care of women with breast cancer, this book provides a timely and indispensable guide to practitioners caring for early breast cancer survivors.
