Dealing with the Big C: What Should I Do After My Diagnosis?

Finding out that you have cancer may understandably, throw you into an emotional turmoil. Here are some tips that can help you cope with your diagnosis:

Understand your feelings and reach out
You may go through feelings such as anger, denial, fear, anxiety, guilt and sadness – and you need to understand that these feelings are normal. Above all, know that you do not have to face cancer alone. To get the support you need, you can talk to:

  • Family and friends
  • Others who have, or have had cancer
  • People from cancer support groups
  • People from your religious community
  • Counsellors
  • Healthcare providers

Try to organise your thoughts amidst the turmoil. One of the best ways is to ask your healthcare providers directly. Whether you are talking to your doctor, the nurse, or seeking a second opinion, write down your questions before any appointment.  Here are some questions that you may have in mind:

  • Where is the cancer located?
  • Has my cancer spread?
  • What further tests do I need to undergo before we decide on what treatment I should undergo?
  • What stage of cancer am I at? What does this mean?
  • Will I need to undergo more tests before we decide on what treatment I should undergo?
  • What are my treatment options?
  • What are the risks and side effects of the treatment?
  • How often are my treatments, and how long do they last?
  • How should I prepare for treatment?
