Hundreds of cancer patients are being asked what support they need to tackle severe emotional pressures.
Patients are being asked if they would like a drop-in centre
NHS Forth Valley is contacting 600 patients between four months to a year after diagnosis to ask them about their quality of life.
The £52,000 survey, funded by Macmillan Cancer Support, covers depression, isolation and sleep problems.
It is also seeking feedback on whether patients would welcome a drop-in centre being established in the area.
Sandra Campbell, NHS Forth Valley nurse consultant for cancer care, said: "One-in-three people will be diagnosed with cancer at some stage in their life and we have to make sure that the best possible services are in place for all of these people.
"We have made great strides in reducing waiting times from GP referral to treatment for people suspected of having cancer, but we also have to remember that this is only the start of an emotional journey that requires support."
A public meeting will also be held at Stirling Royal Infirmary on 6 December at 1830 GMT.
