Question:

Are there any long term effects on children who are treated for brain cancer and cured?

Answer:

Connie Didomenico, CRNP, Nurse Practitioner in Neuro-Oncology at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, responds:

The long term effects of children treated for brain cancer depends on many factors including any effects from surgery including complications from surgery; if radiation is used: long term effects depend on age of the child when they receive radiation and where the radiation is given: whether it is given to a part of the brain or entire brain; as for long term effects of chemotherapy: this depends on the agents given. You can learn more about long-term effects of all pediatric cancer therapies from CureSearch for Childre's Cancer.
