Led by a team of PHE researchers, a new study appearing in the American Journal of Managed Carehas determined that long-term cancer survivors can expect health and quality of life on par with Americans of the same age and background. Those who survived cancer at least 4 years had health and well-being measures that were as good as or better than those of the general population and those with a chronic disease.
