Often, after the initial treatments, you or your loved one may need to take maintenance medicines or have continued follow-ups. As with prevention and early detection, it is good to be faithful to your follow-ups and medicines so that any issues can be seen and responded to early.

Some medicines may also have side-effects. Tell your doctor when you feel these, so that she or he can adjust medication if needed, or help you on how to cope.

There are also medical resources available online that can help give you information on understanding these side-effects, and advice on how to cope.
