A diagnosis of cancer can be devastaing. In addition to the physical symptoms, cancer can take an emotional toll. Individuals suffering from cancer may be more likely to feel depressed, irritable or anxious and may experience other related symptoms, such as insomnia. If you or a loved on is dealing with cancer, a mental health professional can help you learn ways of coping.
