Appearance and Body Image 

Some people are not affected much by body changes, while others may have difficulty accepting even small changes.
Common appearance-related changes associated with cancer and its treatment may include:

• Skin changes
• Swelling of the face, arms, or legs
• Changes in weight, either gaining or losing
• Hair loss
• Scars from surgery
• Loss of a body part
