Five hundred and ten women attending a specialized breast clinic for follow-up after surgery of early breast cancer (Stage I and II) have been studied. Recurrence was found most often (58%) in symptomatic women who returned to the clinic earlier than planned. Only 3% of asymptomatic patients had recurrent disease. It is concluded that counselling in symptoms of recurrent breast cancer would allow more efficient follow-up.
