If cancer treatment causes pain that affects your recovery, rehabilitation or quality of life, pain specialists at the Fox Chase Pain and Palliative Care Program can provide strategies and support to safely and effectively relieve your pain and discomfort.
To support a holistic approach to healing and wellness, the Fox Chase Integrative Care Program offers evidence-based techniques and therapies that promote healing of the body and mind. These include yoga classes, Reiki sessions, music therapy and stress management. These healing practices have been shown to help relieve the symptoms and side effects of cancer treatment; ease pain, fatigue and anxiety; and improve mood. Learn more.
Because a diagnosis of urethral cancer puts you at greater risk of developing other cancers, your doctors will want to follow you closely to check for any signs of recurrence. Your schedule of follow-up screenings will depend on the type, grade and stage of your urethral cancer. It is important to stay up to date with these appointments. Learn more.
