After being treated for rhabdomyosarcoma, follow-up care is extremely important. In the first few years after treatment, your child will need to go to the doctor for frequent check-ups. Your child's doctor may perform a physical exam, including a variety of tests to make sure the cancer has not spread or come back. During and after treatment, you need to take good care of your child's overall health. Make sure to provide a balanced diet, and encourage your child to participate in normal activities and to be as active as possible. Follow-up care is different for each child, so talk with your child's doctor about what you can expect during and after treatment for rhabdomyosarcoma.
