Abstract

As a result of better diagnostics and treatment of cancer, the number of survivors is on the rise. Health care needs for female cancer survivors encompass several domains that include surveillance, prevention, management of short/long-term side effects of cancer, and cancer therapy. Primary care health providers (PCHPs) can play an important role in their health care. There is a need for PCHPs to acquire knowledge and understand the complexity involved in caring for this population. They also should be familiar with the guidelines for following cancer survivor patients.
