Living with liver cancer

Follow-up after treatment for primary liver cancer

After your treatment has ended, you may have regular check-ups (which will include a physical examination) and possibly scans or x-rays. These check-ups will probably continue for several years.

The appointments are a good opportunity to discuss with your doctor any worries or problems you may have. However, if you notice any new symptoms or are anxious about anything else between your appointments, you can contact your doctor or nurse for advice. Many people find that they get very anxious for a while before the appointments. This is normal and it may help to get support from family, friends or a support organisation during this time.

If your treatment is finished apart from regular check-ups, our section on life after cancer treatment gives useful advice on how to keep healthy and adjust to life once the treatment has ended.
