You might feel overwhelmed, scared, anxious or upset if you have been diagnosed with cancer – these are all normal feelings. It’s very important to have support from family, friends, health professionals or other services to help you cope with cancer.
Living with cancer has information about physical, emotional and practical issues during and after diagnosis and treatment.
The Cancer Council in your state or territory can give you general information about cancer, as well as information on resources and support groups in your local area. Call the Cancer Council Helpline from anywhere in Australia for the cost of a local call on 13 11 20.
