I am a 34 year old career woman. I was told I had breast cancer and needed treatment. I opted for the recommended procedure and am now recuperating at home. But I want to know if there is any risk of side effects after breast cancer treatment?

The majority of breast cancer treatments lead to the development of side effects in patients. A few of them, such as nausea, tend to go away as soon as you end the therapy sessions. But they may sometimes come back later. These are known as late effects, and include other symptoms like: • Hot flashes • Depression • Sleep troubles • Pregnancy issues • Chemo brain or the inability to process thoughts clearly • Change in the appearance of the breasts Keep in mind that you need to discuss available treatment options with your doctor. While choosing, make it a point to consider the risks, the side effects, and whether or not, you really require treatment.
