After treatment has finished, you’ll have regular check-ups with your doctor. They will examine you, ask how you are feeling and ask if you have any new symptoms.
You may also have other tests and scans to help your doctors check how well treatment has worked. Your doctor and nurse will explain more about this.
The follow-up appointments usually continue for up to five years. You have them less often as time goes on.
If you notice any new symptoms between your appointments, let your doctor know straight away. Your doctor will check what may be causing your symptoms and if they are linked to your treatment (late effects).
Many people find they get anxious before their follow-up appointments. This is natural. It may help to get support from family, friends or one of the organisations listed in our database during this time.
