If you or someone you care for is facing treatment for a new cancer diagnosis or cancer that has come back, you probably have lots of questions that need answered. Learn about how to approach making decisions about treatment, and what to ask your health care team.
Find out how your cancer care team determines treatment options and schedules, and what you should consider when making decisions about treatment.
Some people may manage parts of their cancer treatment at home. Learn about the special equipment you might need, and find out what you need to know about safely getting treatments at home. You'll also find resources to help you track side effects and medications.
It can be hard to keep track of all the information that you get about your diagnosis and treatment. But keeping this information organized can help you feel less stressed and more prepared to talk with your doctor. The American Cancer Society Personal Health Manager can help.
The Personal Health Manager content can be printed and kept in a 3-ring binder to take along to your appointments. Using tabbed dividers to separate each section will make it easier for you to find what you need.
