Follow-up Care

Doctor seated in center speaks with patient (on exam table on right) while assistant seated on left observes.

After you’re done with active treatment, you will continue to see your doctor to make sure you’re healthy.

Your doctor will monitor you for side effects from the treatment and signs that the cancer has returned.

These checkups may include:

  • a physical exam
  • blood tests
  • the drawing of bone marrow
  • biopsies
  • x-rays or other imaging tests

These tests will be tailored to your specific situation. How long you are cared for at MSK and how frequently you see your doctors depends on the nature of your disease, its stage, and the treatments you received.
