Reliable sources of cancer information

There is a lot written about cancer, both on and offline. It is important to ensure that the information you gather about your diagnosis and treatment is accurate and evidence-based. Government and accredited organisations are the best places to build knowledge about your care. If you are not sure that an information source is reliable, talk to your doctor.
