Below you will see a series of quotes. Each quote represents the meaning of a particular dream(these are all dreams where the meaning is understood totally). For instance one dream may have meant that the dreamer was having trouble at work. In that case the quote may simply be "There is a bad atmosphere at work". Some information is included about which dream symbols were included in the dream(within the squares brackets). Often a sample dream is included which shows you how the dream interpretation was reached.

DREAM ANALYSIS : What is the symbolic meaning of cancer in dreams?

Cancer destroys you slowly but surely and in that sense can symbolise some part of your life which is restricting you or destroying you emotionally. E.g.

"Getting married so early will place so many restrictions on her. She will have no freedom."[Dream Dictionary - lung cancer]

"I was thinking yesterday how life had started to improve for me. Some fundamentally bad parts of my life have started to fade away."[Dream symbol - My uncle dies of cancer]

"I was feeling really depressed yesterday. I have been trying to make new friends. But my illnesses seem to be holding me back. I felt a real sense of hopelessness "[Dream symbol - Being told that nothing can be done ][The dream on which this quote is based is featured in full in sample dream 1]

Cancer can of course symbolise itself and the chances of catching or getting rid of cancer. E.g.

"I think I have done really well in quitting smoking. Now I will be free from the risk of cancer"[Dream Dictionary - cancer]

"My mothers sister died of cancer a few years ago. Now My fathers sister has developed cancer. I remember what happened last time. It was not talked about. I want us to be able to show our feelings more"[Dream Dictionary - shedding tears for cancer]

"My friend recently died of cancer. Its affected me a lot and I very much felt her pain. "[Dream Dictionary - feeling the pain of my friend as she dies of cancer]
-----------------------
SAMPLE DREAM : Dreams generally link to some real issue of relevance to you right now. They may capture your feelings on some health issue, work problem , relationship in difficulty , your feelings about how things are generally going, your plans for the day ahead or some simple paranoia or fear. The dreams featured in this website will try to reduce the dreams meaning to a quote which captures your current feelings on some issue. When studying your own dreams try to think what quotes could capture your own feelings on pressing issues. Think especially of the day before the dream and your thoughts about the day to come.
-----------------------
SAMPLE DREAM(no 1) I am suffering from cancer in the dream. I have been trying to find a cure for it. However, at the end of the dream there I accept that nothing can be done.

THE REALITY The dreamer was not suffering from cancer. However, he had several physical illnesses which were making his life very difficult. Just recently he felt he was starting to overcome these problems. He had been rebuilding his social life. But the day before had been very empty. He had seen no one at all and was feeling very lonely. He started thinking about his illnesses and how they were destroying his life.

DREAM ANALYSIS Dreams often link to key insights and thoughts. Often these have been forming the day prior to the dream. Trying to understand dream symbols can often be rather easy. In this case simply look to the day before and see what cancer could symbolize within our thoughts. In this case it was very easy to interpret the dream. The dreamer had been feeling a real sense of helplessness. His social life had seemed to have taken a nosedive. He had really tried to make new friends after ill health had taken away his job and friends.

Dreams use symbols which compare our thoughts to something similar. In this case cancer had several real similarities to how the dreamer felt. He felt a real sense as if nothing could be done. His illnesses were eating away and destroying his life.

Symbolic Meanings
CANCER : "The dreamer was feeling a sense of hopelessness and believed that nothing could be done to help his rebuild his social life"

DREAM MEANING The dream captures the following feeling within the dreamer - "I really cannot overcome these illnesses I have. They destroy my social life. "

See how the Symbolic Meanings above weave together to form a key insight in the DREAM MEANING
