After treatment for a brain tumour
After your treatment is completed, you'll have regular check-ups and possibly scans or x-rays. These will probably continue for several years.
Once your treatment is finished, you’ll have regular check-ups and possibly scans or x-rays at the hospital. These will probably continue for several years and may become less frequent as time goes on. If you have any problems, or notice any new symptoms in between these times, let your doctor know as soon as possible.
Many people find they get very anxious before their appointments. This is natural and it may help to get support from family, friends or one of the organisations listed on our database.
For people whose treatment is over apart from regular check-ups, our section about life after cancer gives useful advice on how to keep healthy and adjust to life after cancer treatment. We also have information that covers issues such as your feelings, exercise, diet and giving up smoking.
Share your experience
When treatment finishes, many people find it helps to talk about it and share their thoughts, feelings and advice with other people.
This can be especially helpful for other people with a brain tumour who are perhaps about to start their treatment. Just hearing about how you’ve coped, what side effects you had and how you managed them is very helpful to someone in a similar situation.
We can help you share your story. Visit our get involved section for more information about becoming a Cancer Voice.
