Living with and beyond breast cancer
Anne Williams explores the issue of cancer survivorship from the perspective of women who have undergone breast cancer treatment. The article examines three specific aspects relevant to breast cancer and its treatment: fatigue; psychological distress; and lymphoedema. It considers the implications for health professionals such as community nurses in supporting women who are living with and beyond breast cancer.
