Living with cancer

Cancer and infections

Many cancer treatments can lower your resistance to infections and viruses. This page will help you to find out more about cancer and infections and ways you can help yourself to avoid them.

If you have been affected by cancer in some way and would like to talk to someone about what you have read or need help finding information - you are welcome to drop into any Maggie’s Centre or to visit Maggie’s Online Centre and talk with a cancer support specialist.
