Cancer dream meanings


Developing cancer is one of the worst nightmares for a person’s waking life. In the dream world, cancer may not be representing something quite as scary.

Cancer is the last thing we would want to happen to a loved one, so cancer dreams usually show our relationships to other people and the need to nurture.



If you dream about someone with cancer, it is very rare that you should be medically worried about yourself or someone else. There are only two reasons you may need to worry.


1. If you dream about cancer and you know that you have it for certain in real life

2. If you dream about a loved one that you know has cancer.


This sort of dream just wants to make sure you are doing absolutely everything you can to take care of yourself. Have you missed any appointments lately?


In your dream you may have…


  • Developed cancer.
  • Known or seen someone with cancer.
  • Known or seen someone who looked as if they were very sick or had gone through chemotherapy (so you assumed they are a cancer patient).
  • Talked to someone who had cancer.
  • Encountered someone you know who has cancer in real life.
  • Encountered someone you know who does not have cancer in real life.
  • Been afraid of developing cancer.
  • Tried to cure cancer.


Positive changes are afoot if…


  • You were cured of cancer in your dream.
  • Any dream about cancer may be positive in some ways. Although your dream may be telling you that you do not spend enough time with those you love, you at least have the desire to nurture yourself or your loved ones, and that is a positive sign.


Detailed dream interpretation...


Have you done everything you can for your loved one. All you can do is be there for that person and make sure he or she makes appointments. If you have done all that you can, there is no need to worry.


If you dream about someone you do not know with cancer, you have a desire to help the people around you. You wish you could be there for everyone, and it bothers you that this is impossible. Do not stress out about what you cannot prevent; this can only make you sick!


If you dream about yourself having cancer (and you do not have cancer in real life), then you may not be paying enough attention to your own needs. You spend too much time nurturing others and not enough time nurturing yourself. Remember that you are just as important as anyone else, and sometimes it’s allowed to be all about you.


If you dream about someone you know with cancer (who does not have cancer in real life), then this person is someone you feel that you have not spent enough time with. You want to nurture and help this person through any situation, but you cannot always be there for him or her when times get tough. Relax; there is only so much you can do for another person. But try to set aside some extra time for this person, and make sure that you communicate openly and effectively.



If you cure cancer, this is a sure sign that you feel you are doing everything you can to take care of yourself and those around you. You are satisfied with your current state and you are appreciative of all of the people close to you.


This dream is in association with the following scenarios in your life…


  • Relationships and love life.
  • Nurturing and caring.
  • Parenthood.
  • Family and friends.
  • Finding a healthy balance in your life.


Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of cancer…

Loved. Cared for. Caring. Nurturing. Loving. Friendly. Wishful. Distant. Near. Afraid. Unsure. Devastated.
