Your emotional health

Feelings of depression, anxiety, and fear can strike at any time and are very common and normal responses to a cancer diagnosis.

They have a huge impact on most patients, families, and caregivers which can be a big problem. Changes in body image can affect self-esteem, pain, nausea, or fatigue from treatment and fear of death and the unknown can all combine to cause emotional distress.

It’s hard but important to try and manage your stress, which can weaken your immune system and lower your defence when fighting metastatic cancer.
