Dr Lindsay Morton - National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, USA

Dr Lindsay Morton speaks with ecancertv at AACR2016 about the risk childhood cancer patients face of developing breast cancer later in life.

With a growing population of long-lived cancer survivors, Dr Morton has led investigations into the susceptibility of patients to secondary malignancies in the years following their initial treatment.

Dr Morton highlights that this is only a discovery study, and that childhood survival of primary malignancies without relapse is overall a success story, to which clinicians are only now discovering downstream risks.
