Life after cancer treatment

Managing treatment effects

Many side effects will go away at the end of treatment but others may take a while to improve. Some side effects may happen months or years later.

  • Side effects of treatment

    You may still have some side effects after treatment finishes. They usually improve over the following weeks or months.

  • Late effects of treatment

    Late effects are side effects of treatment that don’t improve or develop months or years after treatment finishes.
