Eating a healthy, balanced diet and staying well nourished can help you feel better before, during and after your cancer treatment. 

Having cancer and some types of cancer treatment might affect your appetite, your mouth, how food tastes and your ability to swallow. Some people also get tummy problems such as:

  • Nausea - feeling or being sick
