Many late effects: Childhood cancer treatments have many effects that will not be recognized until later in life. These range from infertility to heart disease to secondary leukemias. The effects depend on which medications were used in the treatment for cancer initially. Many cancer have clinics set up to review a person's individual treatment for cancer and recommend a plan for following the potential effects.
