Cancer rehabilitation helps restore and keep your best function and quality of life before, during and after cancer treatment.
Cancer and cancer treatment often lead to functional impairments, which means some part of your body isn’t working at its best. Your daily life, recreation and work can be affected by severe fatigue, pain, joint stiffness, weakness, numbness or swelling. You may also have problems with balance, thinking, memory, speaking, eating or swallowing.
If offered at your cancer care center, most of the services listed here can be provided in the hospital (inpatient) or after going home (home care or outpatient).
