Three in five adults who survive childhood cancer experience ongoing health problems after treatment ends or go on to develop delayed complications. Such late effects can include infertility, heart conditions, secondary cancers and endocrine disorders related to the pituitary, thyroid or pancreas – even anxiety and survivor guilt. Regular follow up is important.
The Lifelong Outcomes Clinic works with adult survivors to develop a free follow-up care plan based on the earlier cancer diagnosis and potential late effects of cancer treatment. Survivors should share this plan with their current physician to ensure proper monitoring and care.
