Cancer Information Center is a professional group of scientists and medical experts who have joined with an informational team of web savvy experts to provide the best source of information on cancer on the web. We offer this to everyone afflicted with this disease and to their friends, family and loved ones.
Our families have asked us about different medical problems over the years. We have learned that most people cannot understand the medical language used by scientists and medical staff. Since it is your body, your life that is in trouble, not knowing what the experts are talking about makes your situation scary - and just being scared can have adverse health affects.
We really hope that you can learn what to do, how to get your health taken care of. Every medical expert, every psychologist we have told about this website- has told us they appreciate anything we can do to help reduce the fear you may be feeling and to make this disease more understandable.
Please let us know if anything does not make sense to you or is not helpful so that we can improve this for you and your family.
