Tips for Travelling with Prostate Cancer
We’ve put together some useful tips that could help if you’re travelling with prostate cancer.
Speak to your doctor before you travel
- It’s a good idea to speak to your doctor or oncologist before you travel as they’ll be able to advise on treatment and taking care while you’re abroad. They can also provide a medical note if needed and advise against any destinations which may not be best for you to travel to.Radiotherapy, for example, can make the skin photosensitive so sunnier climates might be best avoided. Check necessary vaccines won’t affect your medication, and put a plan together to ensure you won’t be left feeling unwell with changes in time difference.
Arrange your medical travel insurance
- Start looking for prostate cancer travel insurance as soon as your trip is booked. Always keep your travel insurance documents with you wherever you go. Take enough medication for your trip plus a few days extra. You may need a letter from your doctor stating you’re fit to travel, as well as a note authorising any prescription medication that would need to go through customs and security.
Air travel and prostate cancer
- If you feel you might need special assistance let the airline know of your condition after you book. If you use a catheter take a spare and mention this to airline staff to avoid any delays. Ask if you are entitled to early check-in and see if you can get access to the airline’s lounge to relax before the flight.If you’ve had brachytherapy the implanted radioactive seeds may set off airport sensors, so ensure you have a medical advice card or a note from your doctor for this in your hand luggage.
Research your destination
- Long-haul flights can be uncomfortable and tiring for anyone so if you feel you can’t manage a long journey, stick to shorter flights or try travelling by train as an alternative. If English isn’t widely spoken, you might want to ensure you have any important documents translated.
While you’re on holiday
- Keep cool – avoid extreme temperatures where possible.
- Ensure you use SPF30+ – if you’ve been treated with radiotherapy this is especially important.
- Avoid strenuous activity – use your time abroad to relax and spend time doing the things you enjoy.
