Coping with anxiety and uncertainty

Feeling anxious is a natural reaction to an uncertain situation. But if it affects how you cope with daily life, you may need help.

Talking to people about cancer may help you feel less worried. This could be to a friend, family or someone you trust. Some people find it helpful to try talking therapies, counselling or support groups.

Feeling very worried can also make it difficult to get enough sleep. There are things you can do to help you get a good night's sleep.
