Things To Do When Diagnosed With Cancer
Talk to your doctor about your treatment. Ask him to describe the physical effects of the treatment and address any concerns you have. If you know what to expect, it will be easier to deal with. If you know that you will be losing your hair, you should consider speaking with other patients for ideas about handling this major transition. Cancer is still thought of in old-fashioned terms by many people. While cancer does not necessarily keep you from working, and isn’t passed from person to person, many people believe that it does. Always make an attempt to be honest and open.
In addition to making you feel great in your daily life, maintaining a healthy weight and diet, and getting plenty of exercise, has been shown to reduce the risk of cancer. If you want to prevent cancer, you need to eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, exercise for at least half an hour a day and drink at least eight glasses of water per day.
