Evidence shows that survival after low-stage gynaecological cancer is not improved by follow-up programmes. Using a qualitative approach this study explores reassurance in follow-up after cancer from both patients' and health professionals' viewpoints. Patients associated the purpose of follow-up with a guarantee of no recurrence of cancer. Paradoxically, the health professionals were aware that this is not evident. However, patients were not informed about this. This may generate false reassurance and poor utilization of resources.
