Coping with the Emotional Aspects of Cancer Treatment

Last updated 4 years ago

Cancer isn’t something that just impacts you physically. It can also have serious emotional impacts. Caring for yourself emotionally as well as physically can play an important role in your treatment experience.

Watch this video to hear from an oncology psychiatry expert about the things cancer patients can do to care for themselves emotionally. Focusing on healthy thoughts while silencing harmful ones, keeping a journal, walking daily, and getting good, consistent rest can all help people with cancer build the necessary emotional wellbeing to focus on their fight.

If you need help coping with the emotional side effects of your cancer treatment, visit a behavioral health specialist at Brandon Regional Hospital or ask for assistance in our cancer center. Call our Hillsborough County hospital today at (888) 327-2636 to learn about all of our services, from pediatrics to emergency care.
