Follow-up Care

At Mount Sinai, we provide streamlined care through diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up. After active treatment, we will check you periodically for the rest of your life. In this way, should cancer recur, we can catch and treat it more quickly. This approach is true for all the health care providers associated with your treatment, including medical and radiation oncologists, nutritionists, and social workers.
