In brief: Many kinds.

This can have a feeling of loss on several levels.
Surgery might cause change of appearance and/or loss of function, etc.. Other therapy can cause loss of hair, etc.. But the ordeal of cancer and survival can result in loss of time with family and friends. Plans made before this need to be changed, and some aspirations may never be realized. All this can be tempered by the fact of survival.
