The Army And Cancer.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi just a quick question..

    Can you join tje Army if you have had cancer? (if you are cleared of it)
     
  2. I can't see why not, i suppose it depends on how long you have been in remission for and what type of cancer it was.

    Though you will need to get proper advice and not the stuff from soothsayers on here.
     
  3. Record breaking Roy Castle tried, but when he was called forward for the physical, he just went yellow and died
     
  4. If you have been cleared, then all is well, sign up for a life of being screwed around :) 24 years and still can't get away!
     
  5. It's not as bad as it was 20 or 30 years ago, and survival rates are climbing. Research is ongoing, and new drugs are trialled on sufferers attending for treatment as these drugs are released. The follow-up period of screening is up to 10 years before the 'all clear' is declared, so it depends on how long ago you had it.
