The Phobia Of Getting Cancer

It is not surprising that this is one of the most common of all phobias. Recent research by the charity Cancer Research UK shows that over a quarter of people in the UK list being afraid of cancer as their number one worry. This page is devoted to helping people who don’t have the disease, but are afraid of getting it to the point with their fear is dominating their lives.

NLP & Hypnotherapy To Cure Your Fear Or Phobia Of Cancer

The obsessive nature of this kind of fear is another example of someone’s imagination being out of control.  Thoughts and worries about getting cancer seemingly spiral out of control in the mind and it seems that the person has little or no control over them. The good news is that it doesn’t matter where the ‘phobia’ came from, your mind can be trained to put things into perspective.

Typical Problems For Those Who Are Afraid Of Getting Cancer

  • They are scared of hospitals, doctors, or indeed anyone who has been in contact with someone who has the disease (they usually rationally understand that cancer is not something you ‘catch’ from someone else but their imagination overrides their rational mind)
  • They are unable to visit or be with a relative who has the disease
  • They can’t watch a TV program or a film which features cancer
  • They worry constantly and get repeated medical check-ups and scans to check they are OK
  • This fear can lead to obsessive-compulsive house cleaning

Approaches That Simply Work

By combining the best, and most direct techniques of Nero-Linguistic-Programming (NLP) and hypnotherapy we aim to be able to train your mind to come back under your control, so that you can have the kind of thoughts and feelings that you want, rather than the thoughts and feelings that you don’t want.

    Hi when I look at symptoms of a certain type of cancer and my symptom doesn’t fit it or it fits something else I like remember all of the symptoms and I think I might be starting to imagine the symptoms, can this happen? Is this normal for someone with this fear?

      Hi Misha

      Yes unfortunately hypochondria is a very common issue. It is usually fear of cancer or fear of HIV. Humans seem really responsive to their own imagination and the internet can make it all too easy for people to get ‘evidence’ that they are ill. Having said that I obviously need to say that of you have health concerns then go see your doctor. Though the doctor may be able to organise tests to put your mind at rest sometimes it isn’t enough for people and they go looking for more ‘issues’. After checking with your doctor find someone local to help you overcome this fear. Best wishes Steve Tromans: London
