Active Monitoring and Watchful Waiting

You may not require treatment straight away because your cancer is stable. Instead, you may have regular tests and investigations to monitor and look for early changes. This may mean that you can delay or avoid the side effects of having treatment, until you really need it.

Its very common to feel anxious if you are under active monitoring or watchful waiting,  but your clinical nurse specialists will provide support and answer any questions you may have.
