Urology

Living with and after a cancer of the urinary system.

Living with and after cancer can have Physical, emotional and practical impact on your life and those close to you.

Even if you have completed treatment, follow up care and are being monitored at distance or under self –management, having information and feeling supported has been shown to reduce uncertainty, anxiety and depression.

Getting advice from health care professionals and learning some extra skills can make life easier. For example you, your partner or family could go on a course or training day about living with and after cancer.
