Medical Care After Treatment   
Tests, Care for Side Effects & Healthy Lifestyle  

Many patients are relieved or excited to be finished with initial breast cancer  
treatment. But it can also be a time of worry for women who fear their cancer
could come back, or who feel lost without the same frequency of visits with
their cancer care team.
Even after a patient completes breast cancer treatment, doctors will want to
watch the patient closely. It's very important for patients to go to all follow-up  
appointments. During these visits, doctors will ask if they are having any problems.  
They may do exams and lab tests or imaging tests to look for signs of cancer or  
treatment side effects. Plus, some patients may still be taking a HER2 inhibitor or
are on endocrine

Breast Cancer 
About 10 to 20 percent of breast cancers are triple negative, one of the most aggressive
forms of breast cancer. Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) patients have a 77 percent
five-year survival rate compared to 93 percent of women with other types of breast cancer,
in part because they are less likely to pursue chemotherapy treatments that offer the  
highest chance of survival.
In an effort to improve survival rates and health outcomes, the CDC Division of Cancer Prevention and Control engaged with the National Association of Chronic Disease  
Directors and health simulation company Kognito, the leading developer of health  
education simulations, to create "Talk to Someone: Triple Negative Breast Cancer."
