Talking about it
Talking about your cancer, the pain, and how you are feeling can help you cope. Family and friends can be a fantastic support. It might help to talk to them about ways that they can help you.
You can also talk to your doctor or nurse. You should have a main contact, who will often be a nurse. They can provide emotional support as well as medical care.
Having cancer can make some people think more about their spiritual and religious beliefs. You may find it helps to speak to a religious or spiritual leader.
