How do I manage my small intestine cancer on a daily basis?

A few lifestyle changes may make your life with small intestine cancer better and reduce the chances of your cancer coming back. Changes in diet, such as eating a low-fat, high-fiber diet, may help offset other risk factors. Eating smaller meals several times a day means that less food will enter your small intestine at one time, making it easier for you to digest your food and less likely that a tumor blocking part of your intestine will cause severe symptoms. Quitting smoking and reducing alcohol consumption can also help you feel better and decrease your risk of recurring small intestine cancer.
