Abstract

Although many cancer survivors diagnosed with early-stage disease will outlive their cancer, they may continue to experience long-term and/or latent side effects due to cancer treatment. Many of these side effects are common and contribute to worse quality of life, morbidity, and mortality for cancer survivors. This article summarizes the treatment side effects for several of the most prevalent cancers in the United States.
