New study published on fear of recurrence among survivors of childhood cancer

A new study from our lab shows that of 228 survivors of childhood cancer who attended a regular follow-up appointment at the Alberta Children's Hospital over seven years, 43% reported worry about cancer recurrence at least once. Of these, 66% had been diagnosed before the age of 5, and 21% reported concern about recurrence at half or more of their visits.
