Other practical issues after cancer


Once treatment is over, there may be a number of practical issues to consider such as legal or insurance issues, returning to work and financial concerns.

Cancer treatment can be an expensive process. Costs can include the cost of treatment, accommodation, travel and child care. You may also have lost income during treatment because you have taken time off work.

Getting back on track financially may be an important priority for you once treatment is over.

You may want to seek financial advice, talk to a financial counsellor or check if you are eligible for any benefits.
