Answer

A study of a cohort of 200 childhood non-Hodgkin lymphoma survivors found that common late outcomes in adulthood included obesity (35%), hypertension (9%), and impairment of executive function (13%), attention (9%), and memory (4%). The study also found a prevalence of impaired strength (48%), flexibility (39%), muscular endurance (36%), and mobility (36%) in the cohort. [85]
