I don't think there is one person diagnosed with cancer, either on or after receiving active treatment, or on a "wait and see" progam that doesn't succumb to thoughts of the cancer returning.
It's great that the Cancer Council runs videos and articles about this very real concern, however it is also scary to read comments such as a cancer patient (after having nine surgeries in four years) revealing that her GP said “Cancer is aggressive and you need to treat it aggressively”.
It only highlights the lack of support/treatment available to those with Neuroendocrine Tumours (NETS, considered a slow growing cancer/currently incurable), given the response by general oncologists and GPs is the extreme opposite. This leaves the NETs patient feeling as if they are getting "little or no treatment" only myriad "experts" watching while they slowly wither away!
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
