How can I learn more about my cancer?

ANSWER

Don't be afraid to ask your doctor, nurse, or other health care provider to repeat any instructions or medical terms that you don't understand. Your health care providers are always available to answer your questions and address your concerns.

Make use of resources and support services offered by your hospital and in the community. Learning more about your disease will help you feel more comfortable with your treatment.

Ask your family and friends to help you sort through the information you receive, and talk with other patients and families about cancer and its treatment.
