The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) has two new free evidence-based guides for healthy living after cancer treatment: Survivorship Care for Healthy Living and Survivorship Care for Cancer-Related Late and Long-Term Effects.
“Just because initial therapy is over, doesn’t mean that it’s done,” explains Crystal Denlinger, MD, FACP, of Fox Chase Cancer Center and chair of the NCCN Guidelines Panel for Survivorship. “Treatment may end, but fatigue, neuropathy and other effects can linger. For some, cancer survivorship means long-term management as they continue to live with and through disease. These guidelines are applicable for survivors who are disease-free as well as those living with cancer. They are far-reaching across all cancer types, genders and ages.”
