B
Because survivors are at increased risk for developing a second cancer and/or chronic illness, it is important to educate them about lifestyle behaviors and the importance of participating in ongoing cancer screening and early detection practices. Lifelong cancer screening provides the opportunity to identify new cancers in early stages. When health care providers recommend follow-up screening in cancer survivors, the likelihood that the person will actually undergo the screening test is increased.
