What Happens After Radiation Treatment?

Next » « Previous


Expect to have follow-up visits with your radiation oncologist. The follow-up schedule depends on your particular cancer and health condition.

As a general matter, follow up starts with an appointment one month after the end of treatment (during which there will be a review of any lingering symptoms). For the next twoyears, there is likely to be a follow up appointment every six months. Follow up visits may be staggered between your radiation oncologist and other specialists such as a gastroenterologist or urologist. (If you do see more than one doctor, ask each of them to send a report of the visit to the other specialist, as well as to your primary care doctor). If things are going well, the interval between follow-up visits thereafter will likely be lengthened.
