Cancer Care Program

Comprehensive information about cancer prevention, screening, treatment, and care for Nova Scotians.

Continuing to use tobacco after a cancer diagnosis may:

  • lower your response to treatment.
  • increase your risk of complications from treatment.
  • impair healing.
  • impede your overall survival.

Support is available to help you stop using tobacco. Talk to your health care team.
