ECCO 2017 | Managing long term effects of childhood cancer

Martin Schrappe, MD, PhD from the University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein, Kiel, Germany, discusses survivors of childhood cancer at the European Cancer Congress of the European Cancer Organisation (ECCO) 2017 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. He explains that the long term effects of childhood cancer and treatment are difficult to describe, as they vary greatly depending on the disease, and the individual. He states that it is important that patients who do have long term effects are able to access the care and resources that they need.
