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.
