If you have been diagnosed with Cancer or you have had Cancer in the past and would like a quote, we will ask you some medical questions.
The questions will vary depending on which type of Cancer you have, but the following questions are likely to be asked in all kinds of Cancer:
- Has the Cancer ever spread?
- Has the tumour been entirely surgically removed?
- How long ago was the diagnosis made?
- If diagnosed more than a year ago, how often do you see a Doctor about this?
- Is there any ongoing Radiotherapy or Chemotherapy, or is any planned?
- Are strong painkillers being taken?
If you have or have had Cancer and you want to go on a trip, there are several things you should consider.
- Firstly, you should check with your doctor to ensure it is safe to travel. If it is safe to travel, get a letter from the doctor detailing your condition, treatment and medications.
- If you have just had treatment, the after-effects on your body need to be considered.
- If you suffer from nausea or diarrhoea due to treatment, consider this when planning your trip.
- Ensure you have enough of your Medication for the duration of your trip, plus extra to allow for delays and keep it in your hand luggage.
- Some types of Medication can also make you more sensitive to the sun. Ensure you have high sunscreen, a hat and long sleeves to protect yourself from sunburn.
- You should seek advice at least six weeks before travel if you require vaccinations for your destination.
- If you have a weakened immune system from chemotherapy, you should not have live vaccinations for at least six months.
- Check with your Airline and Airport Security in advance in case there are any restrictions on your drugs or if you need a licence to travel with strong painkillers.
- Pre-arrange any necessary equipment, such as oxygen, for travel or at your destination.
- If you are at a higher risk of infection, you may need to consider your mode of transport when travelling. Flying puts you at risk of disease or blood clots, with the possibility of Deep Vein Thrombosis.
