How to stay healthy after finishing cancer treatment?

If you have had cancer before, you have a higher risk of developing it than someone who has never had cancer. This is why you need to stay healthy. Do the following things to protect your health after your cancer treatment ends.

1. Go for regular health check-ups

After your treatment is over, your doctor may recommend that you see your doctor and have future tests. This is called post-treatment care. Try to follow your doctor's recommendations as these tests can screen for cancer recurrence or new cancers early. Listen to your body and see a doctor if you feel anything unusual.

2. Make healthy lifestyle choices

The best way you can take care of your mental health is to talk to your loved ones or the medical team if you're not feeling well.

4. Exercise regularly
