The Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre has created a two-page factsheet with information and practical tips about how to cope with the fear of your cancer coming back.

On the factsheet it says that survivors may be worried about: “how likely it is that your cancer will come back, what symptoms to watch out for, how your body looks and feels, what survival statistics mean, follow-up appointments, significant events or dates that remind you of your cancer diagnosis, getting another type of cancer.” And it offers practical tips on how to help manage these worries.

Cancer Advisor has a range of resources on life after cancer, but we’re always looking for more content. Leave a comment below, share your own story or recommend a resource.
