Late effects of childhood cancer

08/09/2017 Survival after childhood cancer has substantially improved over the past several decades, but this improvement has come at a cost. A recent study by Dr Nickhill Bhakta and colleagues estimates that by age 50 years, nearly all survivors of childhood cancer will experience a chronic health condition that is severe or disabling, life-threatening, or fatal. In a Comment published today in The Lancet, Dr Miranda Fidler, a postdoctoral fellow at the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), stresses the importance of such comprehensive assessments of chronic health conditions among survivors of childhood cancer, in order to better address their complex health-care needs.
