What happens after treatment?

After your treatment, you’ll be seen regularly by your cancer specialist and possibly a specialist nurse at the hospital. They’ll monitor how you’ve responded to your treatment and how any symptoms have improved, and you may have further scans, x-rays or blood tests. You will be shown how to self-examine your skin for any changes.

Many people find that they get anxious before appointments. This is natural and it may help to get support during this time from family, friends, or an organisation. If you have any problems, or notice any new symptoms in between your regular check-ups, let your doctor know as soon as possible.
