Women who were treated with chemotherapy for a childhood cancer still had a good chance of becoming pregnant later in life, according to the results of a new analysis.

Almost 29% of all cancer survivors in the United States have been burdened with financial issues as a result of their diagnosis and treatment.

Some adult-onset cancer survivors have an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease later in life compared to noncancer controls.

The use of a standard yearly physical examination to screen for thyroid cancer among high-risk survivors of childhood and young adult cancers resulted in a negative predictive value of 100% for clinically relevant thyroid cancer and a significant cost savings compared with regular ultrasound screening.

Survivors of thyroid cancer are at an increased risk for developing a second cancer, according to the results of a recently published study.

Breast cancer survivors with estrogen receptor (ER)-positive disease had a lower annual risk of recurrence within the first 5 years after diagnosis, though these patients then had higher rates than ER-negative patients after 5 years.
