Follow-Up Care

At the completion of your cancer treatment, it is important to see your doctor regularly for medical checkups to prevent, detect, and treat complications resulting from cancer treatment. Furthermore, it is important to receive screening for second cancers.

The follow-up care you receive depends on the type of cancer and treatment you had, along with your overall health. Ask your doctor to develop a survivorship care plan with you. This plan will provide medical guidance for your care as you transition to living beyond cancer.
