Travelling with skin cancer

The following are some tips the prepare for, and get the most out of your holiday:

Plan accordingly

Ensure you book an appointment with your cancer specialist at least one month before your trip. This ensures you have plenty of time to action any advice they mat have, and ensure you get an appointment in good time.

Do your research

Officially regulated websites, such as NHS and Cancer Research UK are brimming with up-to-date information, and we high recommend reading up on your condition, as well as the general travel tips they provide.

Pack enough medication for your whole trip

It's always recommended that you carry enough medication for the entire duration of your trip. It's also recommended to carry a little extra, as this will eliminate any potential issues securing medication abroad. Depending on your destination, medication can be difficult and sometimes impossible to obtain. Having your medication close to hand is also a good idea, as will help speed you through customs.

Carry a doctors note, as well as your medication in its original packaging

This will make your medication much easier to identify, should you need to secure more on your trip

Arrange Airline special assistance

Get in contact with the airline as soon as possible to notify them of any special arrangements you might need on your flight. This includes extra space, special meals, or proximity to the facilities.

Translate important medical documents

If you're travelling to a country where English is not widely spoken, it's recommended to carry translations of any documents that relate to your skin cancer.
