Physical changes associated with cancer can be due to the cancer itself or side effects from various treatments. Not everyone has the same physical changes, but during and after your treatment you might experience:
- eating problems
- hair loss
- mobility problems
- mouth sores
- nausea and vomiting
- skin changes
- sleep problems
- surgery side effects
Talk to your healthcare team about any symptoms or side effects you experience, so that they can help you address them.
After your treatment, it’s important to have follow-up visits to check whether the cancer has come back and discuss any symptoms or side effects you might still be experiencing.
