How can a positive attitude help you to live with lung cancer?

If somebody has been diagnosed cancer, it is a physical and an emotional blow for any individual. Treatment that deals with our emotions and relationships can help people with cancer feel more upbeat and have a better quality of life. Sadness, depression, guilt, fear, and anxiety are all normal parts of learning to cope with major life changes, and a cancer diagnosis is a major life change. Trying to ignore these feelings or not talking with others about them can make the person with cancer feel lonely. It can also make the emotional pain worse.
In many cases, lung cancer can be cured if it is detected early. Normal life can be lead after the initial treatment. The most critical part is to follow your doctor’s advice and check-ups. If the cancer is in advanced stage, you may live for years depending on how well the treatment works.

During treatment, you feel more tired than usual especially physical activities that include climbing stairs, gardening, shopping etc are more tiring. Your attitudes, emotions, and moods can change from day to day, and even from hour to hour. You may feel good one day and terrible the next. Know that this is normal and that, with time, most people are able to adjust to a cancer diagnosis and move forward with their lives. One should be aware of the side-effects of treatment like hair loss, nausea, vomiting, constipation, neuropathy and changes that can happen to your skin.

Studies related to cancer patients have been mixed, and some research suggests that having a positive attitude has an important role for boosting immunity. Your general well being and emotional strength often have a direct correlation to survival with lung cancer. Do not let anyone steal your hope. Each person responds differently to each treatment. Be positive in your approach, your family, well wishers and the medical team who are there with you in the fight.
