Your follow-up will depend on the type of cancer you have and your situation. You usually have regular check-ups every few months in the first year. Eventually they will be reduced to every six months or yearly. Some follow-up appointments are with a nurse or by telephone.
At your appointments, your doctor will examine you and you will have blood tests. They will explain if you need any other tests.
Your appointments are a good time for you to talk to your doctor or specialist nurse about any concerns you have.
You can ask if there are specific symptoms you should look out for and what you can do to help with your recovery. If you notice any new symptoms between appointments, you can contact your doctor or specialist nurse for advice.
