Life-saving treatments can leave a wake of long-term physical and mental side effects for which patients may not be prepared.
Treatment of cancer involves the use of strong drugs that target cancer cells with the goal of curing the disease. Once cancer treatment is over, it is important to continue follow-up care and to understand the late effects of cancer treatment. Second Opinion "Late Effects of Cancer Treatment" airs Saturday, October 26, 2013 at 3 p.m. on WXXI-TV.
Second Opinion is made possible in part by support from the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association (BCBSA), which has been the major funder since the series’ inception in 2004.
