Cancer Survivorship

Cancer survivorship refers to cancer patients navigating their life experiences and the challenges they might face from the moment of their cancer diagnosis. it is focused on the distinct phase of cancer care following active cancer-directed treatment, and comprehensively extends over a range of issues faced by survivors, including the physical, mental and social aspects of the cancer experience.

Each patient’s course of survivorship will be personalized to each individual, with cancer progression affecting the types of treatments required.

Why is it important?

Some concerns addressed by cancer survivorship includes:

  • Monitors patients’ late and long-term treatment-related effects/
  • Assesses patients’ health related quality of life impairments
  • Maintenance of patients’ general health

What may cancer survivorship entail?

  • Detailed treatment plans such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, etc 
  • Support services for emotional effects you may experience such as Fear of Cancer Recurrence (FCR), anxiety and depression
  • Possible late or long-term effects of treatments and their symptoms
  • Wellness recommendations such as healthy diets and exercise programmes

Cancer survivorship is all about your well-being during your cancer journey, from the beginning to the end. If you have advanced cancer, cancer survivorship conversations may shift to the kind of care you’d like toward the end of your life such as palliative care or hospice.
