Survivorship

In cancer, survivorship focuses on the health and life of a person with cancer post treatment until the end of life. It covers the physical, psycho-social, and economic issues of cancer, beyond the diagnosis and treatment phases.

Survivorship includes issues related to the ability to get health care and follow-up treatment, late effects of treatment, second cancers, and quality of life. Family members, friends, and caregivers are also considered part of the survivorship experience.
