Cancer survival rates have doubled in the UK over the last 30 years, and the latest figures suggest there are two million cancer survivors in the UK at the present time. "The Cancer Survivor's Handbook" is for people who have finished active cancer treatment, but who naturally face anxieties about their health and how to get back to normal life again. Topics include: 'am I cured?'; side effects of treatment; follow-up procedures; diet and exercise; sex and fertility; work and money; holidays and travel; support for cancer survivors; and, 'how do you know if your cancer has come back?'.
