Moving beyond treatment

Review

Review

• Finishing treatment is a major milestone in your

cancer journey.

• Regular follow-up is critical to protecting your

long-term health.

• Instead of a cancer treatment team, you will now

need a cancer survivorship team.

• The U.S. Institute of Medicine has recommended

that all cancer patients be given a survivorship

care plan.

• Being a cancer survivor can add new layers of

complexity to your personal life and relationships.

• You may worry the cancer will come back and you

will have to start over with treatment.
