Living with secondary bone cancer

You will have regular check-ups with your doctor at the hospital and your GP. They will want to make sure your symptoms are under control. This is called follow-up. These check-ups may include having a physical exam, blood tests, X-rays or scans. If you have any problems in between appointments, let your doctor or nurse know as soon as possible.
