Recurrent breast cancer. A proportion of breast cancer patients will develop disease recurrence, and it is important to recognise and manage this in a timely manner. This chapter explains the differences in management between local, loco-regional and systemic disease recurrence, including surgical, radiotherapy and chemotherapy options. The treatment of skeletal metastases is also covered, and the importance of involving palliative care specialists emphasised. Finally, the management of locally advanced primary breast cancer is discussed.
