After treatment 

  • Follow-up

    When you have finished treatment it will be important for you to be monitored to check for any signs that the cancer has returned or become active again. You will be seen in clinic regularly, by your surgical team, oncology team, or both. Follow up will normally involve an examination by your doctor, together with an x-ray or scans, depending on where your cancer was. Even if your cancer is completely gone, we will still need to check you for several years.

  • End of treatment

    We recognise that end of treatment can be a stressful time for some people.

    The UCLH Macmillan centre run a health and wellbeing event for people who have recently completed or are coming to the end of their treatment, which includes

      • A range of workshops, run by healthcare professionals, on fatigue, sleep, physical activity, diet and relaxation.
      • A chance to speak to others and share experiences
