Cancer Survivorship Conference 2007
"Now What? The New Normal of Cancer Survivorship After Treatment"
For many, cancer is a chronic disease. More individuals are living longer with a history of cancer than ever before due to advances in medical screening, diagnosis and treatment. These changes have placed a new emphasis on “survivorship,” including issues of employment, health and life insurance, and long term side effects of treatment, such as joint pain, cardiac toxicity, and sexual function. Individuals living with a cancer history, as well as their doctors, face new challenges and opportunities.
