Ask an Expert is a place where you can ask our Macmillan professionals and experts questions. We have multiple teams available to help:
- Ask a nurse
This is a place for medical questions. Please remember that our Macmillan nurse specialists can’t access your medical records and can’t advise on healthcare systems overseas.
- Ask a Financial guide
This is the place for questions about money and cancer. This includes questions around your pension, mortgage and insurance.
- Ask a Work support advisor
Our Work support advisors can answer questions about work and cancer.
- Ask an information and support advisor
Our Information and Support team can offer advice and support around the emotional impacts of cancer.
Although we take care to ensure accuracy, Macmillan Cancer Support does not accept liability for the information provided in Ask an Expert, or for third-party information such as other websites we may link to. We recommend that you consult your doctor if you are concerned about your health. Any information provided by our Experts is not a replacement for advice from your medical team, and our Experts cannot provide a second opinion to that of your medical team. All answers will be based on information that is correct at the time of posting. Your question can be read by others – so please don't post your contact details or any other information that could personally identify you. Please read our Terms and Conditions and Community Guidelines for more details.
You can access the ‘Ask an Expert’ section from the homepage.
