Study of Late-Occurring Complications in Childhood Cancer Survivors

Official Title: Key Adverse Events After Childhood Cancer

This clinical trial is studying cancer survivors to identify those who are at increased risk of developing late-occurring complications after undergoing treatment for childhood cancer. 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.
