Cancer.Net: Guides to Cancer Care

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Cancer.Net, a patient information web site maintained by the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), offers guides for many types of cancer and related hereditary syndromes for both adult and pediatric patients. Each guide provides broad clinical information for patients, families, and caregivers on the nature of cancer, signs and symptoms, related risk factors, diagnosis, staging and grading, and types of treatment. Additional resources related to coping with such diseases, available clinical trials and ongoing research, and the important aspects that need to be discussed with their treatment team are also provided. Each guide is reviewed by experts on the “Cancer.Net Editorial Board” that includes oncologists, surgeons, nurses, physician assistants, social workers, and other medical professionals involved in the care of patients with cancer.
