The treatment of breast cancer with chemotherapy, targeted therapies, hormonal therapy and radiation therapy aims to eradicate cancer cells. This may also cause varied side effects which can be long-lasting and impact each person differently. This program will address the questions: What are the common side effects resulting from cancer treatment? How can the symptoms of side effects be managed to maintain quality of life during treatment and beyond?
