    Struggle with/against

    Are struggle with/ struggle against interchangeable in general?

    Re: Struggle with/against

    I would say no.

    Have you any specific context?

    Re: Struggle with/against

    Actually I would like to know if in general they are interchangeable or not, let's use the example below:
    She struggles (with/against) cancer.
    Which one is correct?
