Priority from the Teenage and Young Adult Cancer PSP

UNCERTAINTY: What are the best strategies for detecting and treating second primary cancers early? 
Overall ranking This was one of the 20 questions at the workshop that fell outside of the Top 10. These were not ranked in any order of priority
JLA question ID 0060/26
Explanatory note ‘Second primary cancer’ is a term used to describe a new cancer that develops in a person who has had cancer in the past. Follow up care has been well described, this, when in place, offers one place for surveillance for new cancers, based on diagnosis and treatment received. Follow up is not the only route, knowledge the young person has about their diagnosis can help them to be 'body aware', there could also be other strategies we do not yet know enough about. 

Cochrane review protocol: Beverley Lim Høeg , Pernille Envold Bidstrup, Trine Allerslev Horsboel, Susanne Oksbjerg Dalton, Lena Saltbæk, Randi Valbjørn Karlsen, Klaus Kaae Andersen and Christoffer Johansen (2016) Follow-up strategies following completion of primary cancer treatment in adult cancer survivors

Protocol for review - focus on adults with cancer, not young people.
