When you are having treatment for cancer, the medical professionals looking after you will probably ask whether you smoke. If you smoke, either regularly or “socially”, your medical team will tell you if smoking will impact on your cancer treatment. Some people find it very difficult to break the smoking habit, or choose not to do so long term, whereas others choose to stop smoking as soon as they are diagnosed. If you aren’t sure whether smoking will affect your cancer treatment, speak to one of the health professionals looking after you. One thing is for sure, smoking does have an impact on your health and finances, and if you would like to find out more about smoking, or you are thinking about making a change to your smoking habit, a wide range of support is available.
