Being told you have cancer is a huge shock. You may feel anxious and uncertain about what will happen next.
Your doctor will explain the type of cancer you have and what tests and treatment you will need. But often it can be difficult to take in everything that’s being said. We can give you information about:
- tests and scans
- the type of cancer you have
- different treatment options and possible side effects.
For many people, a cancer diagnosis is life changing. Knowing what financial and emotional support is available can make the future seem a little less daunting. You can contact one of our cancer support specialists, who will be able to answer any of your questions about living with cancer.
Some people may find it helpful to have some statistics when making treatment decisions. However, while statistics can give you an idea of what may happen, doctors can’t say for certain what will happen to you.
