Survivors' guide

Wednesday 1 April, 2015

We've created two information booklets for people who've finished active treatment for cancer, such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy. They're about the emotional, physical, practical and social challenges that you may face now treatment is over. These challenges will vary depending on the type of cancer you were diagnosed with and the treatment you received.

If you're still having treatment or your doctor's said your cancer has advanced (can't be cured), see our advanced cancer pages.

Many people diagnosed with cancer now live a long time after treatment. The end of treatment may be a time when you realise the impact cancer had on you, your family and friends. You may like to pass our information on to your family and friends to help them understand that although your treatment's over, you could still face some difficult times.

We hope these pages will give you the information you need to live well after cancer. If you'd like to talk to someone call Cancer Council on 13 11 20  for information and support.
