I have cancer

Information and support when you're diagnosed with cancer

It is devastating to hear that you have cancer and you will have many different feelings and emotions.

When told the diagnosis, you may feel numb or as if you have been physically hit. You may be shocked, bewildered, scared, sad, guilty, angry or may not be able to believe that this has happened to you. These are normal reactions. It is important to remember that it’s not your fault you have cancer and it’s not because of anything you’ve done or anything you have not done.

Learning about your cancer and what to expect during treatment and beyond can be a helpful way of coping with what's happening to you.
