Social workers who work specifically in oncology may help support cancer patients and their families navigate a variety of issues: dealing with a new diagnosis and treatment, mental health, finances, and more.
Usually, they are available in larger healthcare centers and hospitals, but if you are at a community hospital, don't be afraid to ask for help. They may have someone else who offers the same kind of assistance.
