Living with Liver Cancer

Having cancer can change your life and the lives of your family members in many ways. Patients and their families often feel shock, anger, sadness, fear, frustration, and confusion when faced with a diagnosis of cancer. These feelings often come and go, and the experience is sometimes compared to an emotional roller coaster.

You may have many questions about the cancer, its treatment, and its effect on your life. Your doctors and nurses are the best people to answer these questions. You may also have questions about how your job, finances, and family relationships will be affected. Your social worker can suggest services and agencies that help provide financial aid, transportation, home care, and emotional support.

Living with any serious disease can be difficult and challenging. Many patients find it helpful to share their thoughts and feelings with a professional counselor or with other patients who are going through a similar experience. Others may find it easier to talk with a minister, priest, rabbi, or other religious leader. Your social worker can help you find support groups, counseling services, or other related resources.
