Money worries keep millions of cancer survivors from getting medical care, according to a new study.

The survey in the journal Cancer says 2 million U.S. adult cancer survivors did not get one or more needed medical services.

About 10 percent of cancer survivors also said they had to forgo filling prescriptions.

It also suggests that far more than the uninsured are struggling with medical bills. Those with insurance may still have trouble paying for co-pays, deductibles and care not covered by their plan.
