Support with the fear of your cancer returning
Being diagnosed and treated for cancer is a distressing event which our mums hope will never happen again. Unfortunately for some mums, cancer does return whether it is a reoccurrence of cancer they were treated with or a different type of cancer.
For most cancers, the risk of reoccurrence decreases over time and you will have regular follow-ups specific to the type of cancer you have. Please ask your medical team to explain what signs and symptoms to look out for and get these checked out as soon as possible if you have any.
Living with fear and uncertainty that your cancer may come back is extremely difficult and for some mums, they think about nothing else, this is a normal reaction however if this continues for a period of time please ask your health care team for support around this.
