Early and locally advanced breast cancer: diagnosis and treatment
Early and locally advanced breast cancer: diagnosis and management - The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)
This guideline covers diagnosing and managing early and locally advanced breast cancer. It aims to help healthcare professionals offer the right treatments to people, taking into account the person's individual preferences.
A table of NHS England interim treatment regimens gives possible alternative treatment options for use during the COVID-19 pandemic to reduce infection risk. This may affect decisions for patients with early and locally advanced breast cancer. See the COVID-19 rapid guideline: delivery of systemic anticancer treatments for more details.
NICE have also produced guidelines on advanced breast cancer, familial breast cancer and suspected cancer: recognition and referral.
In April 2023, we reviewed the evidence and updated the recommendations on arm and shoulder mobility.
