Coping with treatment

The emotions you felt when first told the news you had cancer often come up again when you start treatment and can even intensify while you’re having treatment and dealing with its effects.

It’s completely normal to feel anxious, worried, sad or distressed, even angry. But if these feelings become overwhelming, last for a long time, or start to interfere with your daily life, talk to someone in your YCS team or contact one of the organisations that provides support to young people with cancer – see support services.
