Hürthle cell

After any treatment, the surveillance and

maintenance phase will start. This will include

follow-up testing with imaging tests, blood tests,

and physical exams.

See Guides 15 and 16

.

Your doctor will continue to monitor your health and

consider further treatment if any cancer is suspected

or found.

It is helpful to ask your doctor about your follow-up

care. This way you can prepare for your visits and

any further testing you may need. It is also a good

idea to share any symptoms you have with your

doctor. He or she will want to know how you are

feeling after treatment and between your visits.
