Many people who have been treated for early breast cancer feel anxious and worry that their cancer may one day come back (recur). Fear of cancer recurrence is the term used to describe these worries and anxieties.
This video, presented by BCNA, will assist in providing you with techniques and strategies to support reducing fear of cancer recurrence. You will hear from:
- Professor Bruce Mann, Breast Surgeon, around how likely it is that your breast cancer will recur and what you need to look out for
- Dr Charlotte Tottman, Clinical Psychologist, around how to manage the emotional triggers and challenges
- Kathy Bell, BCNA Consumer Representative, about her own personal experience with fear of recurrence
The webcast is hosted by Vicki Durston and runs for an hour.
