The effects of the atomic bomb appeared to have subsided by the end of 1945, but other disorders appeared later. The disorders that appeared from about the time the acute effects were ending were called aftereffects. Beginning with keloids, survivors suffered a significantly higher incidence of cataracts, leukemia, malignant tumors (cancers), and in-utero effects.
