Living with unknown primary cancer

Once your treatment is over, your doctor will want to see you for regular check-ups. This is known as follow-up. At first, these check-ups will be quite often but gradually become less frequent. At the check-up, you may have tests like those you had before you were diagnosed. If you are between check-ups and have a problem that worries you, let your doctor know without delay.

Get support

There are many cancer support centres and voluntary groups around the country. If you feel they could help you and your family, call the National Cancer Helpline on 1800 200 700. The Helpline nurses can give you more information on counselling or support groups in your area.

We can also help you cope with the emotional effects of a cancer diagnosis.
