Advice for travelling with cancer

  • The first thing you should do in planning your holiday is to speak to your doctor about what is feasible for you and how your holiday can be managed. Ask them to write you a note confirming that you have cancer and how you treat it, including which type, brand and dose of medication you use, to help get you through any problems at airport security or if you lose your bag. You should also speak to your doctor about travel vaccinations as these can interact with cancer medications or be dangerous if you have a lowered immune system.
  • Some cancer sufferers have a higher risk of deep vein thrombosis, so make sure you get up and walk around often on the plane and wear those fetching flight socks.
  • Remember to take time zones into account when planning your doses of medicine.
  • Avoid drinking tap water abroad, including ice cubes in your drinks, as there is a chance they could cause stomach distress, which can be dangerous for cancer patients.
  • Some cancer sufferers may be more sensitive to the effects of strong sunlight, so ensure you use a high factor of sun lotion and keep covered.
