Holden Cancer Center tip: childhood cancer follow-up care

Nearly 300,000 survivors of childhood cancer live in the United States today. However, few seek long-term follow-up care after treatment.

And while follow-up care is important for any cancer survivor, it is even more important for survivors of childhood cancer.

Children with cancer get treatment while developing both physically and mentally. As a result, they may have health-related "late effects" that show up years or even decades after treatment.

Follow-up care can help spot any changes in health. If childhood cancer survivors cannot see their original cancer doctor for such care, they should seek care from a different cancer doctor or family physician.
