People with cancer (and those close to them) can experience a range of feelings during their cancer journey.
These can include anger, sadness, fear, feeling out of control and feeling that there is nothing they can do to help themselves or their situation.
These feelings are very common around the time of diagnosis, or when there are changes in the course of cancer treatment. Negative feelings related to cancer often come and go. They usually improve with time as the person gets used to their cancer diagnosis and treatment, and learns to cope with the stress of having cancer.
