Unfortunately one in three Australian men and one in four women will be directly affected by cancer before the age of 75, with melanoma, prostate, colorectal, breast and lung cancers comprising the most common types.
If you have been diagnosed with cancer then you will know that treatment usually involves a combination of: surgery, radiation, systemic chemo- or hormone therapy and numerous visits to the GP / Specialists.
While getting the right treatment as soon as possible is essential, the treatment will result in a number of side effects which tend to peak during treatment, however symptoms may persist for many months or even years following treatment.In addition cancer and its associated treatment may increase risk of other common chronic conditions, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and osteoporosis.
