Today, three-quarters of children and adolescents with cancer survive. Survivors are predisposed by their treatment to health problems that may not become apparent until they mature or begin to age. For healthcare providers who manage childhood cancer survivors in long-term follow-up programs, and for those providers who are increasingly likely to encounter childhood cancer survivors in their practices, this book is a comprehensive guide to the health issues in survivorship. The symptom-specific tables and disease-specific algorithms make this reference easy to use in clinical settings.
