When you or someone close to you has a tumour or cancer, you may feel confused or have concerns, worries or feelings that distress you. You might have many feelings following your cancer treatment; some people are relieved and ready to put the cancer behind then and get back to normal life, but others find it difficult to move on. Adjusting to life after cancer can take time. It is often after treatment that the emotional impact of what you have been through hits home.
As a result you may find it useful to speak to a counselor, psychotherapist or psychologist near your local hospital. You can ask your CNS to refer you to these services. They will know about the services available.
