Study Summary

After breast cancer patients complete the acute phase of their treatment (i.e. surgery, chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy), they are routinely followed in clinic every 3-6 months for several years. Multiple guideline recommendations exist with no consensus on the optimal follow-up schedule due to lack of randomized data to support any particular follow-up recommendation. Therefore the investigators propose a randomized trial evaluating personalized vs guideline-based well follow-up strategies for patients with early-stage breast cancer.
