Emotional support

Women react in different ways when they learn they have breast cancer. Feelings can be muddled and change quickly. This is quite normal and there is no right or wrong way to feel. Breast cancer and its modern treatment is a huge life journey. Talking about how you are feeling with your surgical or oncology team, or your family and friends can help. For details of additional support services, such as support groups or counselling, phone the information nurses at the Cancer Information Helpline on 0800 CANCER (226 237).
