Skin Cancer Support

Skin cancer support groups are often helpful for people with the disease. In these support groups, patients or their family members meet with others to share what they have learned about coping with cancer and the effects of treatment. Skin cancer support groups can offer help online, over the phone, or in person. Your healthcare providers may also be a source of support.

Skin Cancer Support: An Overview

Skin cancer has a better prognosis, or outcome, than most other types of cancer. Still, learning you have any type of cancer can be upsetting, and you may worry about skin cancer treatment, managing side effects, and medical bills.
 

Skin Cancer Support From Healthcare Providers

Doctors, nurses, and other members of the healthcare team can answer any questions you may have or address your concerns. Meeting with a social worker, counselor, or member of the clergy can be helpful if you want to talk about your feelings or worries. Often, a social worker can suggest resources for financial aid, transportation, or emotional support.
