Cancer support at a click

When you, or a loved one, receive a cancer diagnosis, it can be hard to know where to turn to for advice and information. Try these sites…

Macmillan

For general cancer information, macmillan.org.uk should be your first port of call. It has a dedicated section for cancer information, including its causes and risk factors, details of tests, screenings and treatments, plus how to live with the disease. If you don’t have cancer but know someone who does, Macmillan has advice for you too, and there’s even a specialist section for young adults and teenagers.

Cancer Research UK

Another excellent source of advice and information is cancerresearchuk.org. Details are divided into four main sections: cancers in general, specific cancer types, coping with cancer, and trials and research. So whatever information you’re looking for, you’re sure to find it here.

Bupa

In addition to facts about different types of cancers, at bupa.co.uk you’ll find essential tips on cancer awareness, how to live after treatment, and how to talk to children about cancer. Bupa also hosts firsthand stories from people who’ve been diagnosed with cancer, which can be helpful.

Other websites

While nhs.uk covers all kinds of cancers, for people affected by breast cancer, breastcancernow.org is an important source of support. Prostatecanceruk.org has all you need to know about prostate cancer, which is the most common in men in the UK. And for more information on bowel cancer, see bowelcanceruk.org.uk.
