Having cancer doesn’t mean you have to lose hope. The outlook for many cancers is improving constantly. Some cancers can be cured, while others can be controlled. If the cancer can’t be controlled, symptoms can be managed to make life more comfortable.
Often the first thing people ask when they are told they have cancer is, ‘Am I going to die?’ You may wish to talk to your doctor about what the diagnosis means for you and what the future may hold. Knowing more about your illness may help. What you hope for may constantly change.
