When the doctor comes back with that news that you have developed cancer, your world can come to a stop.

You must fight cancer daily with a positive attitude!

What Things Do You Think About?

A million and one things go through your head and it’s hard to get through the confusion and put together a rational thought.

Many, many people have gone through some type of cancer, even as survivors themselves or through someone they love.

So you can find plenty of moral support via live groups, online chat rooms and forums, and other areas.

You can even start a group and speak with people who are going through the same thing you are.

If you have cancer or if someone you love has the disease, one of the first things you should do is work to deal with your feelings on the matter.

Do not allow for any negative feelings to bleed over into someone else’s life.

Face those fears head-on and work on keeping those emotions at bay.

Use a calendar or schedule book to log your activities.

How Does a Cancer Diagnosis Change Your Life?

A cancer diagnosis often means that you will be busier than usual with appointments, meetings, and visits from your friends and family.

Keeping track of all these events will help you stay organized and make your life a little less stressful.

It is important to eat well if you are receiving chemotherapy treatment.

It is not always easy to eat at this time, chemo and cancer both can affect your appetite.

Eating a balanced diet will help you to be able to tolerate treatment and will help support your recovery.

Beware that breast cancer can occur in women of all ages.

Many women think that because they are in their twenties or thirties that they cannot get breast cancer, therefore, they ignore symptoms, like lumps in their breasts.

If you feel anything suspicious, be sure to let your doctor know.

Eating a lot of red meat or processed meat, such as bacon and lunchmeats, pose a greater risk for colorectal cancer.

This risk may be associated with the fat, salt, iron, and nitrites in these types of meats.

Try to cut down on red meat and try healthier alternatives like turkey, chicken, and fish.

Understand that cancer will change your life forever.

If you are lucky and can have a full recovery, you will never view life in the same manner that you used to.

You will get a new perspective on life, and this may change many current relationships that you have.

Try limiting fat in your diet. By decreasing the amount of fat, you will lower your cancer risk. Avoid frying, especially deep frying.

There are alternatives to frying such as baking, roasting, broiling and steaming.

Try to buy the low or non-fat versions of your favorite foods, like milk and yogurt.


Numerous studies have been conducted on garlic and its many medicinal qualities, but one of garlic’s best medical benefits is that it helps to eliminate the cancer-causing cells produced in the body.

Check your available surgical options compared to your chemotherapy options and vice versa when fighting cancer.

Maybe surgery can help you to get rid of the cancerous tumor, and maybe chemotherapy is your better option.

When a doctor suggests one, be sure that you ask about the other. Cover all your bases here.

Cancer Cure

Watch out for cancer treatment scams.

After being diagnosed with cancer, you may feel desperate to try any treatment you can find.

However, you should be careful and fully research any treatment method you are considering. If cancer “cure” sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Discuss and research the treatment with a reputable doctor or government agency before deciding on any treatment.

Finding help when you have cancer is very important. It can be hard to focus on even your day to day life, much less cancer-fighting information.
