Guidance for the management of early breast cancer: Recommendations and practice points

This document contains the 200 recommendations and practice points that comprise the Guidance for the management of early breast cancer. The Guidance has been developed as an essential resource for health professionals involved in the management of women and men with breast cancer. It updates and replaces in full or in part Cancer Australia’s 2001 Clinical Practice Gguidelines for the management of breast cancer in women and various subsequent topic-specific updates.

This Guidance has been developed to meet the need for comprehensive, up-to-date, evidence-based guidance that encompasses management of early breast cancer from the point of diagnosis.

The Guidance is also presented in a user-friendly, accessible format on a Cancer Australia featured site at www.guidancebreastcancer.gov.au.

High level review of evidence and guidelines to inform the Position Statement on the use of fine needle aspiration (FNA) and core biopsy of the breast in the BreastScreen Australia program

The use of biopsy techniques for the assessment of mammographic screening-detected lesions varies across the BreastScreen Australia program. In this context, there is uncertainty about the appropriate use and limitations of non-excisional biopsy techniques. Accurate biopsy information is essential to the BreastScreen Australia Program, as women with screen-detected lesions and their health professionals make decisions on their management options using this information.

Shared cancer follow-up and survivorship care

Follow-up care is essential following completion of active treatment for cancer to check whether the cancer has returned, discuss physical and emotional health, and monitor and manage any risk factors and side effects of treatment. Shared cancer follow-up care involves the joint participation of specialists and GPs in the planned delivery of follow-up and survivorship care for patients.
