What is Cancer Rehabilitation?
Cancer and its treatment often cause physical, psychological, and cognitive problems. These problems can make it harder to do daily activities or return to work. They may also have a lasting effect on your health. Cancer rehabilitation can help with these problems, which can happen during and after cancer treatment. The goal of cancer rehabilitation is to:
- Help you stay as active as possible and participate in work, family, and other life roles
- Lessen the side effects and symptoms of the cancer and its treatment
- Help keep you as independent as possible
- Improve your quality of life
