Finding Support During Treatment for Nonmelanoma Skin Cancer

Dealing with your feelings is often easier as you learn more about skin cancer and get support from others. Your health care team can answer your questions. Talking with friends and family can also help, and you may find support from others who have had nonmelanoma skin cancer. Meeting with a social worker, counselor, or member of the clergy may also help you talk about your feelings. Recognizing your feelings can help you cope with them. That, in turn, may help ease some of your concerns. Talking with a nurse or social worker at your hospital or clinic may be helpful.
