Research suggests that around one in two people will develop some form of cancer in their lifetime, with cancer of the breast, bowel, lungs and prostate among the most common.
Treatment for cancer is usually complex, and involves multiple therapies, some of which come with significant side effects, such as sickness, extreme fatigue and hair loss.
