How does talking to the doctor combat cancer-related fatigue?

ANSWER

Although cancer-related fatigue is a common and an often expected side effect of cancer and its treatments, you should feel free to mention your concerns to your health care providers. There are times when fatigue may be a clue to an underlying medical problem. Other times, there may be medical interventions to assist in controlling some of the causes of fatigue.
