What if it comes back? Managing fear of recurrence

Once your treatment has finished, you may worry that the cancer could return. Worrying about recurrence may affect your physical well-being, as well as your ability to enjoy life and make plans for the future. Learning ways to manage the fear of recurrence can help you find a “new normal”. Making changes to your lifestyle can also help you to live well and reduce the risk of developing another cancer.
