Dealing with Treatment-Related Problems as a Cancer Survivor
Date: Thursday, June 11, 2015
Time: 6:30 p.m. - 8 p.m.
Location:
Cancer Support Community, 4918 Cooper Rd., Cincinnati, OH 45242

Description:

Over 14.5 million men and women are cancer survivors due to early detection and advances in cancer treatment. However, many survivors are dealing with problems that are related to the type of treatment they received.

This symposium addresses two problems that may occur with one or more of the active treatments (surgery, chemotherapy or radiation). Elizabeth Shaughnessy, MD, PhD, surgical oncologist, and Rene Thomas, physical therapist, discuss lymphedema resulting from surgery and/or radiation. 

Richard Curry, MD, neuro-oncologist, discusses a problem called impairment of cognitive functioning.

Cancer survivors are encouraged to attend to learn about these treatment-related effects and ways to manage them. Time will be dedicated to questions and answers.

Fees:

Free
