Survivorship

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.

Adult survivors of childhood astroglial tumors with significant vision loss are more likely to suffer various psychological and socioeconomic impacts such as unemployment.

Most adolescent and young adult survivors of Hodgkin lymphoma did not receive the recommended care within the first year post-treatment, according to a study.

A randomized trial showed that personalized care plans and one-on-one counseling can improve adherence to survivorship plans among low-income breast cancer survivors.

A study of female cancer survivors found that almost half experience CIPN symptoms years after completing their cancer treatment.
