Living with cancer presents many new challenges, both for the patient and for their family and friends.

  • You will probably have many worries  about  how the cancer will affect you and your ability to ‘live a normal life’, that is, to care for your family and home, to hold your job, and to continuing the friendships and activities you enjoy.
  • Many people feel anxious and depressed. Some people feel angry and resentful; others feel helpless and defeated.
  • For most people with cancer,  talking about their feelings  and concerns helps.
  • Your friends and family members can be very supportive. They may be hesitant to offer support until they see how you are coping. Don't
  • Wait for them to bring it up. If you want to talk about concerns, let them know.
  • Some people don't want to ‘burden’ their loved ones, or prefer talking about their concerns with a more neutral professional. A social worker, counsellor, or member of the clergy can be helpful if you want to discuss  feelings  and concerns  about  having cancer.  Your oncologist should be able to recommend someone.
  • Many people with cancer are helped profoundly by talking to other people who have cancer. Sharing concerns with others who have been through the same experience can be remarkably reassuring.

Support groups of people with cancer may be available through the medical centre where you are receiving treatment. The American Cancer Society also has information about support groups all over the U.S.
