Coronavirus: Advice and support for everyone
If you are having treatment for cancer, stopping smoking may help the treatment work better. It can help your body respond to the treatment and heal more quickly.
You are more likely to recover more quickly from your surgery, have fewer complications and a shorter stay in hospital if you stop smoking.
Stopping smoking may also lower the risk of cancer coming back after treatment.
