Study of Late-Occurring Complications in Childhood Cancer Survivors
What is the purpose of this trial?
RATIONALE: A patient's genes may affect the risk of developing complications, such as congestive heart failure, heart attack, stroke, and second cancer, years after undergoing cancer treatment. Genetic studies may help doctors identify survivors of childhood cancer who are more likely to develop late complications.
