Adult T-Cell Leukemia/Lymphoma: Long-term Survivorship
Once treatment is completed and ATLL is in remission, physicians will continue to monitor the health and status of each patient during follow-up care. Patients in remission should have regular visits with a physician who is familiar with their medical history and the treatments they have received.
Some treatments can cause long-term effects or late effects, which can vary based on duration and frequency of treatments, age, gender and the overall health of each patient at the time of treatment. A physician will check for these effects during follow-up care. Visits may become less frequent the longer the disease remains in remission.
