More people than ever are surviving cancer or living with it as a long-term condition. While there is plenty of information and support available to people during their treatment, it can be hard to adjust afterwards and get back to as normal a life as possible. After treatment ends, many people feel a range of emotions, both positive and negative. They could experience physical side effects which they might not have expected. Their relationships may be affected, or perhaps they are unsure how to return to work.
All of these feelings are common. On this page you will find resources and advice to help you understand these challenges, whether you have had cancer or are a friend or relative of someone who has.
In this short video a leading oncologist and a former cancer patient talk about the challenges people may face after cancer treatment.
