What can help someone deal with skin cancer?

ANSWER

For most people with skin cancer, talking about their feelings and concerns can help. Friends and family members can be very supportive. Some people also feel better if they can talk to other people who have the same type of cancer. Support groups for people with cancer may be available through hospitals. The American Cancer Society also has information about support groups throughout the U.S.
