Even though you may have had the same melanoma diagnosis or treatment as someone else, your post-treatment experience may be quite different. Your doctor should talk to you about the long-term effects of your specific cancer treatment.
Some of the most common physical changes that people report are:
- Memory and concentration changes
- Nervous system changes
- Lymphedema or swelling
- Mouth and teeth problems
- Changes in weight and eating habits
- Trouble swallowing
- Bladder or bowel control problems
- Menopause symptoms
Your doctor can help you to manage and control many of these changes. Speak with your doctor at the first sign of any problems you experience.
