Cancer :: provides information for cancer survivors

The American Cancer Society’s most recent estimate showed that more than 10.5 million Americans with a history of cancer are still living, and the total cancer deaths in the United States declined for the second straight year in 2004 (the most recent year for which statistics are available).

Improved cancer survival rates reflect early diagnosis, improved treatments and new treatments for some kinds of cancer.

Being declared cancer-free can be both joyful and frightening. Mayo provides cancer survivors with tools and information to help deal with topics such as:

Late effects of cancer treatment

Managing emotions after cancer treatment

Relationships with family and friends

Caring for your body

What to expect with follow-up care

Managing common workplace challenges

Coping with cancer recurrence
