The prevalence and impact of pain in women after breast cancer: A longitudinal cohort study
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women. Breast cancer survival rates are high, but many women are living with unwanted consequences of breast cancer treatment. Up to 69% of women experience pain after breast cancer treatment and this pain is associated with poor quality of life. The aim of this research project is to understand how pain and the impact of pain changes over time, what factors influence the development of pain after breast cancer.
