This section looks at some of the emotional and physical effects of breast cancer and its treatments. It discusses some of the issues that may arise in the early weeks and months, and gives practical information about coping with them.
You can find out about practicalities such as benefits, finance and work-related issues and read information on diet, exercise, body image, intimacy, sexuality and fertility.
We also look at relationships – whether you are a person living with breast cancer or a partner or friend of someone who has been diagnosed. Information on talking to friends and family is available, as well as resources for parents and children.
If you have any questions, please remember that we offer a range of free services for people affected by breast cancer. From diagnosis, through treatment and beyond, our services are here every step of the way.
