Survivorship Clinics

Some treatment centers have survivorship or follow-up cancer care clinics, which provide a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to monitoring and supporting cancer survivors. Most of these clinics specialize in helping pediatric cancer survivors, but some work with adult cancer survivors.

It is helpful for a patient to be seen yearly at a long-term survivorship clinic specifically for cancer survivors, along with regular visits to a primary care doctor. Coordination between oncologists and primary care doctors is important to provide the best care possible.

You can find information about survivorship clinics for survivors of cancer by visiting the Resources section in
