Living with and beyond

After treatment for sarcoma, you will have regular follow-up appointments for several years.

The usual practice will include:

  • a chance to discuss symptoms
  • an examination to look for any signs of the sarcoma returning
  • a chest x-ray to rule out any secondary cancers occurring in the lungs

It is a good idea to check for recurrences yourself through self-examination. Your doctor or sarcoma clinical nurse specialist can tell you what to look for.

This can be a frightening and stressful time. It’s important to seek out support.

Our panel of patients and experts talk about recurrence, rehabilitation, pain management and more
