Cancer is a condition where the cells in a specific part of the body grow and reproduce uncontrollably, causing lumps and tumors. The cancerous cells can then invade and destroy surrounding healthy tissues, including vital organs. There are over 200 different types of cancer, and different factors cause it. Some cancers can be hereditary, and others can develop through diet, tobacco, and alcohol.
There are many treatments on offer, such as surgery, radiotherapy, chemical, and biological therapies.
The impact of a cancer diagnosis presents an enormous challenge for both the person who has cancer and the family and friends.
As well as having to deal with exhausting treatments, the people involved may also have an insecurity that is raised by a life-threatening condition, which can result in feelings of anxiousness, anger, and loss of temperament
Individuals who have cancer and their family members can feel very isolated and may feel like they do not want to reach out to people they know. They do not want to burden the people around them, and they may feel like they do not want to talk to people around them as the people around them may not be able to understand what they are going through. So reaching out to a trained counsellor can help as the counsellor can listen and comfort you in the time that you are feeling distressed and disorientated.
