Follow-up tests

Printer-friendly version

Some of the tests will not finish when the treatment ends. Your child will still have some follow-up tests to go through, such as complete blood tests (see How is cancer diagnosed?). These follow-up tests are used to make sure that your child is recovering normally and that the cancer has not come back.

The doctor will let you know which follow-up tests your child will need, and how often. Some of the tests will be the same as the tests that were used to first diagnose the cancer (see How is cancer diagnosed?). Some of the tests will need to be continued for a long time after treatment has stopped.
