The disease itself, and the treatments you need, can cause a range of symptoms that might sometimes be hard to manage.</p><p>Your health-care team will tell you that your cancer treatment may have a number of side effects. Experiencing side effects does not mean that you received the wrong treatment, that your health care provider made a mistake, or that your treatment isn’t working. You need the treatment to get rid of your cancer. </p><p>While treatment is meant to destroy cancer cells, it can also affect normal cells, such as those involved with thinking and remembering things and with digesting food. But even though the treatment may seem hard to deal with at times, it works toward the ultimate goal – making you cancer free. </p><p>The following pages will describe some of the symptoms you may experience in more detail. If you are experiencing symptoms, talk to your health-care team.<br></p>
