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.

  • Immediate effects

    After your cancer treatment finishes you may still have some side effects for a few weeks or months.

  • Late effects

    Late effects of cancer treatment may develop months or years after treatment ends.
