Nutrition in cancer development and treatment plays a major role. Many people experience problems with eating from the treatment they are having or from the cancer itself. It is well known that people who are underweight or malnourished may not be able to get through treatment as well as a someone who is well-nourished.

Studies show that the eating practices of individuals diagnosed with cancer should be assessed throughout the continuum of care to reflect the changing goals of nutritional therapy. Good nutrition also continues to be important for patients who are in remission or whose cancer has been cured.
