SFCE is also ...

The French Society for the Fight against Cancers and Leukemia in Children and Adolescents (SFCE), an association of health professionals (surgeons, radiotherapists, radiologists, pathologists, biologists, nurses, researchers) dedicated to the improving the understanding, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of cancers in children and adolescents.

For 50 years, therapeutic advances have increased cure rates for childhood and adolescent cancers. Today, nearly 80% of the sick are cured. But, years after the diagnosis, in adulthood, other health problems related to the long-term consequences of the disease and its treatments, can appear.

It is quite possible that there will never be any long-term medical consequences related to the treatments received. Conversely, late effects can appear, sometimes 15, 20 or 30 years after treatment, potentially leading to significant complications. These complications depend mainly, but not only, on the treatments received.

Learn about the types of complications, their related signs and symptoms, and ways to prevent or manage their long-term effects.
