Relationships and sex

We've teamed up with young adult fiction writer and advice columnist Matt Whyman to answer your questions about relationships and sex. Matt's been helped by cancer experts and people who may have been through similar experiences to you.

Relationships and sex

Matt says: Managing your love life is challenging at the best of times. When you're also undergoing cancer treatment it's important you have access to the support you need to continue making the most of this aspect of your life.

Relationships aren't for everyone of course, but whatever your experience it's worth knowing that advice is on hand to help deal with strong feelings or difficult situations. Here are my answers to some of your questions.
