The goal of this Children’s Oncology Group study is to learn how to identify patients who are at greater risk of developing late-occurring complications from their childhood cancer. Researchers will observe how genetics, cancer treatment, and other factors contribute to developing complications related to heart function, blood circulation, and development of other cancers. Insights from this study may help clinicians improve observation of patients to help prevent such complications from occurring or to identify them sooner.
This study is enrolling patients, infants through adults, who had a diagnosis of primary cancer at age 21 or younger, irrespective of their current age, with or without a late-occurring complication.
Males and Females: All ages
Researchers will collect medical record information as well as blood and saliva samples for biologic and genetic testing. Participants will complete a questionnaire about family history and health history.
