There are many different reasons why you might want to travel. You may want to go away to relax, see new places, meet friends or family, or perhaps to work.
Being diagnosed with cancer sometimes makes people want to travel more. Some people decide to book trips they had always imagined going on.
Travelling can be a positive and fulfilling experience. But when you have cancer, there are a few more things you will have to think about when planning a trip. It’s important that you (and any health professionals looking after you) think about any possible health problems and check thoroughly whether you are fit to travel. You can often avoid travel problems with good planning.
