My husband is a 17 year survivor of Hodgkins. He received chemo and full body radiation. In the past year he has developed vision problems that an eye specialist thinks is related to radiation treatment. Also, his primary care physician is leaving practice and he needs a new physician. I'm wondering, is there an internal medicine specialty geared specifically to cancer survivors? My husband is 42 yo, too young for a geriatric doctor and a long way from his initial cancer treatment to need an oncologist. I would think there would be some medical specialty for cancer survivors.
