INTESTINAL CANCER: To get follow-ups for intestinal cancer treatments, you have to ask the doctor or doctors who have been treating you. If the surgery was for a small growth, it would not be as often as for a larger, more extensive cancer. Do ask your doctor and surgeon about this. I'm sure they told you when and how often to return.
