Late Effects of Treatment for Children's Cancer

Problems related to cancer treatment that occur or persist after treatment is completed are known as "late effects." Unfortunately, three out of five survivors develop late effects.  If they do occur, it is best to catch these early so treatment can begin right away. This is why ongoing follow-up care for children’s cancer survivors is so important.

Following are links to information about the most common late effects and how they can be best detected and managed.
