This page is about the cancer treatments you may have, and how to talk about these with children and teenagers. Knowing about your treatment and its side effects can prepare children for what to expect and help them feel less anxious. What they’ll need to know will depend on their age.
If you’re struggling to take it all in, it may help to talk to our cancer support specialists first. You can contact them by calling 0808 808 00 00. We have information about the type of cancer you have or its treatment, which may help you explain treatments to your children.
