Follow-up after treatment for primary liver cancer
After your treatment has finished, you’ll have regular check-ups, which will include a physical examination and possibly scans or x-rays. These will probably continue for several years.
Many people find that they get very anxious before appointments. This is natural. It may help to get support from family, friends or a support organisation.
If you have any problems or notice any new symptoms in between check-ups, let your doctor know as soon as possible.
For people whose treatment is over apart from regular check-ups.
Our section on life after cancer treatment gives useful information about keeping healthy and adjusting to life after treatment. We also have information on exercise, diet, giving up smoking, and your feelings after treatment.
Having cancer is a life-changing 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 liver cancer 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.
