All patients have their first follow-up at their local hospital or at Oslo University Hospital 4-8 weeks after end of treatment for evaluation of treatment result, side effects, and need for other treatment.
Subsequently, the patient attends a routine follow-up schedule.
Possible side effects may be:
- skin soreness
- soreness in the throat
- diarrhea, depending on area treated
The radiated area must be protected from sun exposure during the first years after treatment since the skin can be easily sunburned.
