Showbiz darling Kerri-Anne Kennerley says she will know by the end of the month if radiation treatment for breast cancer has been successful.

Kennerley said on Thursday she has now completed a six-and-a-half week course of radiation treatment.

However there's still the possibility that she may need to take anti-cancer medication for another five years before she is given the all-clear, she told AAP.

"In fact I've finished ... and it leaves me with a few more doctor's appointments," Kennerley said.

"If by the time I see the oncologist, which is in a few weeks' time, they will tell me what they want me to do.

"There's a little known fact, that for five years they want you to take anti-cancer drugs.

"You have to weigh-up those options and we are going to have that discussion."

Kennerley has not let her battle with cancer stop her and has remained relatively active with work.

She only recently filmed a segment for Sunday Night on the Seven Network and this weekend she is heading to Europe to film a travel commercial arranged by Seven.

"I didn't stop. It's not me. It's not who I am," Kennerley said.

"I went away to South Africa and did a wonderful story on rhino poaching and I'd like to do more stories like that.

"In 30 years of television ... it's a relentless grind, so to be able to shoot a story for six days was such a joy.

"I leave on Sunday for Rome, Venice, Florence, Paris ... so to be able to do a story for Sunday Night and have so much fun doing a travel commercial is unbelievable."
