Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among women and covers 25% of all cancers. After mastectomy and reconstruction, many patients develop various upper extremity complications such as joint movement limitation, pain, lymphedema, and axillary cord. Because of such upper extremity problems, evaluation and treatment of upper extremity functions are important. Upper extremity functions are generally evaluated with questionnaires filled out by the patients themselves and which reflect their own perspectives subjectively. However, these questionnaires cannot reflect the observations and evaluations of the clinicians. Performance tests are important for clinicians to make decisions.

With this study, we want to examine the usability of the FIT-HaNSA test in the evaluation of upper extremity functions in patients with breast cancer. Our hypothesis; The FtHaNSA test is successful in evaluating the upper extremity function in patients with breast cancer.
