The addendum to NICE clinical guideline 81 has added recommendations on exercise in people with or at risk of breast-cancer-related lymphoedema to section 1.5 of the NICE guideline. The addendum also contains details of the methods and evidence used to update these recommendations. The recommendations in exercise in lymphoedema are also relevant for people with early or locally advanced breast cancer.

The advice in the NICE guideline describes the tests, treatment, care and support that patients with advanced breast cancer should be offered.

It does not specifically describe the care of patients with early breast cancer or those with rare or non-cancerous tumours of the breast.
