After treatment for vaginal cancer

doctor and patient stock

What follow-up do I need?

No matter what type of cancer treatment you have, you will still need regular check-ups once it is over. This is called follow-up. 

The follow-up may involve having a physical exam, blood tests and scans. 

If you are between check-ups and have a symptom or problem that is worrying you, contact your doctor or specialist nurse for advice and to make an appointment, if necessary.

If you become suddenly unwell and can’t contact your specialist nurse or hospital team, go to your GP or the emergency department at the hospital.

What if the cancer comes back?
