Managing your
fear of breast cancer recurrence

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
webcast will assist in providing you with the techniques and strategies to
support reducing such fears.

We will explore the facts around how likely it is that your breast
cancer will recur, what you need to look out for (what are the red flags)
and how to manage the emotional triggers and challenges.

Participants will hear from Prof Bruce Mann, Breast Surgeon, Dr
Charlotte Tottman, Clinical Psychologist, and Kathy Bell, Consumer. There
will also be the opportunity to ask questions online.

    Hi @Giovanna_BCNA.  Will BCNA take notes and put them up for those of us who are not computer literate and/or do not have computer access at that time ?  It would be appreciated by many, I am sure.  Thank you.

    I have hear Charlotte Tottman speak before as well and always impressed by her understanding and approach.  When I fell apart towards the end of chemo, someone suggested that I try to get into her as she was so good.  Unfortunately, I couldn't get an appointment and now realise that it was probably about the time that she was going through her own diagnosis.  

    I found it really interesting her comments on reviewing her own professional practices before returning to work and her realising her underestimation of the reality of anxiety around recurrence.  Not that I would wish a cancer diagnosis on anyone, but it seems that it has to be lived to really get it.
