Cancer patients and diets



If you have cancer, you need to try to continue to eat well in order to help your body fight the disease. This is often difficult because the cancer and the treatment can make you feel very unwell. However, there are ways to manage and control these effects.

If you or someone you know has cancer, it may be useful to speak to a dietitian, nurse or doctor. They can offer advice on what to eat, how to deal with loss of appetite and any other eating problems you might experience.

You can also refer to the websites of the state and territory Cancer Councils for more information or phone Cancer Council 13 11 20.
