Yes, based on what I've read and what I experienced with my dad during his cancer treatment, it depends on the type, location and severity of the cancer (stage, mets, etc.). It is best to ask your oncologist though.
I would suggest keeping a notebook and pen handy so you can write down questions as you think of them and take it to the doctor with you and write down his/her answers so you have them to refer back to. It is easy for doctors to get wrapped up in the physical and checkup part of visits and their busy schedule that they often times rush through appointments, thus causing patients to forget half of what they wanted to ask. I know it helped us when I took my dad to the doctor. Encourage your family to write their questions or observations of your condition in the book as well. They may see something or think of something that you don't.
Wishing you all the best.
