ASCO’s booklet Managing Your Weight After a Cancer Diagnosis: A Guide for Patients and Families addresses how being overweight slows recovery and affects survival for patients with cancer.
In addition to providing information on different weight-loss methods, this booklet discusses the common challenges to losing and maintaining one’s weight, including the emotional challenges that accompany making lifestyle changes. It also provides tips for talking with the health-care team about weight-loss concerns and resources to help patients succeed.
