As a consequence of cancer treatment, many adolescents and young adults (AYA) patients are required to take leave or face setbacks from their education. While most AYA cancer survivors and survivors of childhood cancer are capable of successfully returning to the educational system, unsuccessful returns place AYA at an increased risk of social isolation, stigmatization, and financial burden. The perspective of AYA cancer survivors who have returned to education is valuable to understand the challenges faced and resources available throughout this transition. The purpose of this study was to explore AYA cancer survivors' management of returning to secondary or higher education.
