Advances in the diagnosis and treatment of minor cancer patients have improved survival rates in Spain. In fact, it is estimated that more than 80% of affected children and adolescents survive after five years of treatment. However, after those five years, it is possible that a large number of these children may develop some type of sequelae as a result of cancer or tumour suffered or the treatments received.
It is especially important that these patients have access to special controls throughout their adult lives. Survivors should be aware of potential late effects and should also be alert to the risk of relapses and seconds. In short, it is necessary to ensure their quality of life and their health after the disease and in their adult life. This video shows four real cases of cancer survivors.
