Pain management is particularly important for cancer patients, considering one in three patients continues to experience pain after treatment. If you have pain, the severity and prevalence of your pain may depend on many factors, including the type and stage of your cancer, your treatment plan and your tolerance for pain. You may experience pain from the cancer itself, or as a side effect of cancer treatment. Those with advanced cancer are most likely to have severe pain.
Cancer survivors can be affected by a number of health problems, but often a major concern is facing cancer again. If the same kind of cancer comes back after treatment it's called a recurrence. But some cancer survivors might develop another type of cancer later usually more than 10 years after treatment. This is called a second cancer. People who have had Hodgkin lymphoma HL can get any type of second cancer, but research has found they have an increased risk of certain cancers.
