The harmful effects of radiation and chemotherapy are well-documented, and lots of research has been carried out to minimize the hazardous effects. By which, we have moved ahead in this regard and now able to deliver the treatment with minimal morbidities. However, the follow-up of patients during the postradiation/chemotherapy is usually dependent on general practitioners in most developing countries.
