Cancer Survivors: Life After Cancer.

  • Staying Healthy After Cancer Treatment
  • people preparing vegetables

    Eating lots of fresh vegetables is one way to stay healthy.

  • When your treatment is finished, your doctor may tell you that you should get checkups or tests in the future.
  • This is called follow-up care. Be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions. These tests can help find early signs of a new or the same cancer.

You can lower your risk of getting cancer again or having the cancer come back by making healthy choices like:

  • Staying away from tobacco. If you smoke, try to quit, and stay away from other people’s smoke.
  • Limiting the amount of alcohol you drink.
  • Protecting your skin from overexposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun and tanning beds.
  • Eating lots of fruits and vegetables.
  • Keeping a healthy weight.
  • Being physically active.
  • Getting a flu shot every year.
  • Getting the COVID-19 vaccine series and any booster doses to stay up-to-date.
