Cancerophobia or Carcinophobia, the Fear of cancer

Cancerophobia or Carcinophobia


Cancerophobia or Carcinophobia are considered to be an inappropriate, exaggerated fear of cancer. It typically affects those who have had the disease or have known people afflicted with it. Of course, it’s normal to experience fear of any kind but people with carcinophobia often take their fear to the extreme and when that fear impacts their everyday life it becomes a source of concern. The thoughts are constantly revolving around this one topic and everything that may be related to it. Every little detail can lead to the worst fears. The own physical condition is being watched anxiously. Constantly thoughts arise as; “Is everything alright with me?”. How to live a fulfilling life under such circumstances?

As is typical for hypochondriacal disorders, patients believed to suffer from a serious illness. This can lead to an exaggerated observation of the physical symptoms. People with the excessive fear of having cancer spent some time in medical facilities to get proof. The medical professionals who find no confirming clues are distrusted. Even the best examination results calm down for the moment.

The intense self-observation and fears cause the body to be in a permanent state of alarm. Correspondingly, body and mind react.

Of all the phobias that exist, the fear of getting cancer can be one of the most debilitating. While many sources of other specific phobias can be avoided, a person who suffers from carcinophobia carries their fear with them.

If you suffer from cancerophobia, please seek professional help before it impacts your life. Left untreated, carcinophobia can become a debilitating condition that can affect every aspect of the sufferer’s work, social, and home life.




Treatment of carcinophobia


Dealing with the fear is highly encouraged.

Hypnosis or more exactly trance intensify the therapeutic interventions. In a trance is the communication with the unconscious possible. Depending on the situation, it is more or less about analytical discovery. The focus is on the solution.

Psychotherapy is a very personal matter and the form of hypnotherapy with Hypnobalancing ™ is based on collaboration. Therefore, it is important that you make an impression of me (profile) in advance. Together we will explore which methods are best used in combination with hypnotherapy.

Please clarify physical causes by visiting a medical doctor and read the information on contraindications for hypnotherapy before making an appointment.
