‘Scanxiety’ and other Post Cancer Treatment Realities

For many cancer survivors, it seems cancer is never really over. The fear of recurrence can make follow-up visits and routine examinations events to dread. Even when the diagnosis is in the distant past, survivors still worry cancer will one day return. While a certain degree of anxiety is perfectly normal, I always encourage patients to look for ways to reduce these negative emotions so they can better manage their health.
