Cancer – Chemotherapy & Radiotherapy


Being diagnosed with cancer can be frightening. It helps to be well informed about how the various treatments are going to affect you, and possibly your ME/CFS, and about after-care. We hope that this leaflet will help you be better prepared.

People who have a long-term condition are inevitably going to find that they may develop other illnesses as time goes on – including serious conditions such as cancer. However, there is no firm evidence from published epidemiological research studies to indicate that cancer is more (or possibly even less) likely to occur if you have ME/CFS, or that overall life expectancy is reduced by having the condition.
