Care after treatment for the breast cancer ends:  At some point you may decide to stop treatments for the cancer.  This can happen when treatment stops showing any benefit or when it greatly affects quality of life.  Once treatment for the cancer has stopped, reducing any cancer-related symptoms (called palliative care) becomes the main focus, rather than just part of the treatment.  Palliative care is given by your oncology team and palliative care specialists.  Your palliative care specialists can also help with your advance care planning.
