Tips for Feeling Your Best During and After Treatment for Nonmelanoma Skin Cancer

Tips for Feeling Your Best During and After Treatment for Nonmelanoma Skin Cancer

Most treatments for nonmelanoma skin cancer affect only the areas being treated. Because of this local treatment, side effects are usually minimal. You may find that you are more concerned about the longer-lasting effects. For example, you may worry about how treatment will affect your appearance, especially since skin cancers often occur in visible areas such as your face. You may also wonder about whether the cancer will return.

To help you feel your best before, during, and after treatment, you’ll want to take these steps:

  • Learn how to talk with your health care team about how you’re feeling.

  • Seek support from family and friends, as well as others who have had nonmelanoma skin cancer.
