Prostate Cancer Home > Prostate Cancer Follow-up Care
Prostate cancer follow-up care after treatment is important. Even when the cancer seems to have been completely removed or destroyed, the disease sometimes returns because undetected cancer cells remained somewhere in the body after treatment.
Your doctor will monitor your recovery and check for recurrence of the cancer. Checkups help ensure that any changes in your health are noted and treated if needed. Checkups may include:
- Lab tests
- Other tests.
Between scheduled visits, you should contact your doctor if you have any health problems or unusual changes in your body.
