I’ve Just Been Told I Have Colorectal Cancer

There are very few things scarier than being told you have cancer. You may feel like you’re in shock. You may not even want to believe what the doctor has told you. And there are probably so many questions you want to ask, but think you can’t because you don’t know where to start.

First of all, it’s OK to be overwhelmed. And it’s OK to feel afraid. But you shouldn’t let those feelings stop you from finding out as much as you can about your cancer and about the options you have. Because the more you know, the less helpless and afraid you will feel. And the more you know, the better you will be able to work with your health team to make the best choices for your treatment.

You can start now to face your cancer experience with confidence. And the best way to start is to learn more about colorectal cancer and your diagnosis.
