|Condition or disease|
The study will focus on the following objectives:
- Characterize survivors' health with respect to disease- and treatment-related factors.
- Investigate the consequences of various intensities of exposure to chemotherapy and/or radiation on health outcomes (e.g., cardiovascular, reproductive, second cancers, etc…).
- Compare the mortality experience of survivors with the general population.
- Characterize the health-related behaviors, patterns of medical care, and medical follow-up needs of survivors.
- Describe patterns of familial aggregation of cancer, including known (and variations of) cancer family syndromes.
- Collect and store biologic samples (saliva, blood, second tumor tissue) to correlate with health outcomes and use for future research.

Survivors of cancer, diagnosed under 21 years of age, between 1970 and 1999 This project will study children and young adults exposed to specific therapeutic modalities, including radiation, chemotherapy, and/or surgery, for an increased risk of late-occurring events associated with excess mortality and morbidity.
A group of sibling controls will be identified to provide: (1) the ability to make direct comparisons with the survivors, (2) data on outcomes in a non-cancer population, and (3) additional comparison group to determine consistency of findings between data sources.
- To characterize survivors' health outcomes with respect to disease-, treatment, and genetic-related factors. [ Time Frame: 25 years ]
