Potential side effects of treatment vary for each therapy, and every person responds differently. Talk to your healthcare team about the potential side effects of treatment, including side effects like anxiety, depression or insomnia. If your healthcare team understands the side effects you are experiencing, they can better help you manage them.
Some of the women we surveyed said it was sometimes hard to take their cancer treatment as prescribed. It is okay to feel this way, but if you do, let your healthcare team know. Cancer treatment is complicated, so do not make changes before talking to your healthcare providers, even if you are experiencing side effects. The more information you communicate, the more they will be able to help you.
