The study will focus on the following objectives:
- Characterize survivors' health with respect to disease- and treatment-related factors.
- Investigate the consequences of various intensities of exposure to chemotherapy and/or
radiation on health outcomes (e.g., cardiovascular, reproductive, second cancers,
- Compare the mortality experience of survivors with the general population.
- Characterize the health-related behaviors, patterns of medical care, and medical
follow-up needs of survivors.
- Describe patterns of familial aggregation of cancer, including known (and variations
of) cancer family syndromes.
- Collect and store biologic samples (saliva, blood, second tumor tissue) to correlate
with health outcomes and use for future research.
