What A Cancer Follow Up Plan Should Include

« Previous


A cancer follow up plan should include each of the following:

  1. The medical name of your diagnosis. (Ideally, a hard copy of your diagnosis will be attached, though this is not necessary.)
  2. All treatments you received, including:
    • The medical name
    • Dates
    • Dosage
    • Other pertinent facts
  3. What signs or symptoms to watch for in the future.
  4. Which doctor(s) to call if any of the subject signs or symptoms appear.
  5. What the lasting effects of your treatment(s) could be. If you know what could happen as a result of your cancer and/or treatment, you can take steps to help reduce the possibility they may happen. For instance, if you had a type of chemotherapy that could result in a heart condition in years to come, you would know to start living heart wisely - such as doing aerobic or other exercise and eating a heart friendly diet.
