Survival after childhood cancer has improved substantially; therefore, the number of childhood cancer survivors is increasing. This growing population of childhood cancer survivors, however, is at risk of a spectrum of adverse health outcomes. Unfortunately, until now, there was a lack of comprehensive follow-up recommendations. The purpose of this article is to provide information on recently developed harmonized evidence-based guidelines on surveillance investigations to screen for the early detection of breast cancer, cardiomyopathy, male gonadotoxicity, and premature ovarian failure in childhood cancer survivors. We point out the need for a multidisciplinary pediatric and adult specialist team, who together develop multidisciplinary long-term follow-up clinics.
