While the end of active cancer treatment may bring some relief, it can also bring many questions and anxieties for young patients and their families.

In this Cancer Conversations podcast episode, Lisa Diller, MD, chief medical officer of the Dana-Farber/Boston Children’s Cancer and Blood Disorders Center, discusses topics around fertility, growth, late effects of treatment, and other important concerns families often face when a child finishes cancer treatment.
