Childhood cancer survivors on the rise, most have chronic health conditions (April 2, 2015 - Insidermedicine) From Chicago - Childhood cancer survivors are on the rise, and most have chronic health conditions, according to research published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention. Researchers studied cancer survival data from two US registries, examining data on 14,000 long term cancer survivors. Based on this data, researchers estimate that cancer survivors have increased by nearly 60,000 since 2005 and that 84% survived five or more years following diagnosis. They also estimate that around 70% of these survivors also have a mild or moderate chronic condition, and that one third of cancer survivors suffer from severe, disabling or life-threatening chronic condition.
