One of the challenges for the adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer population is the transition of adolescent cancer survivors treated at pediatric institutions to adult-based providers in their young adult years. Unfortunately, most AYA survivors are not enrolled and followed in survivorship programs and are oftentimes treated by primary care physicians who are unfamiliar with AYA cancers and the long-term effects and issues associated with them.
