Hello. I was dx WT at age 3 in remission for more than 30 years. I knew I had some lingering problems due to the cancer and treatment. Other problems I've discovered one at a time. As I get older I'd like to avoid more Cancer Surprises or at least be prepared for them. So I'm looking for a doctor who focuses on treatment of cancer survivors.
I located a couple of clinics for LTFUC in my area but they require records of my treatment. I understand this requirement because the incision scar doesn't prove anything, but it is rather frustrating since those records went to the incinerator 30 years ago.
Should I start with a visit to an oncologist? Or does someone know of a clinic in the D.C. area that doesn't require records?
