Can't Find What You're Looking For?

Follow-up after treatment for large bowel cancer

After your treatment has finished, you will have regular check-ups and blood tests, and possibly scans (CT, MRI or ultrasound), x-rays and sometimes colonoscopies. These may continue for several years, but will become less and less frequent. If you have any problems or notice any new symptoms between your appointments, let your doctor know as soon as possible.

Many people find that they get very anxious for a while before the appointments. This is natural and it may help to get support from family, friends or one of the organisations listed during this time.

If you have any problems, or notice any new symptoms between these times, let your doctor know as soon as possible.

For people whose treatment is over apart from regular check-ups, our section on adjusting to life after cancer treatment gives useful advice on how to keep healthy and adjust to life after cancer.
