Cancer survivors often experience physical and psychosocial long-term and late effects after treatment ends.
Cancer survivors often experience physical and psychosocial long-term and late effects after treatment ends. Although most individuals experience some types of side effects during treatment, it is often surprising to survivors that some side effects can linger on after treatment is over, or can appear later on.
Nurses and patients have a lot to learn from each other to help us better understand and manage the effects of cancer treatment.
