Checking the Validity of Breast Cancer Information
There are hundreds of Web sites that provide information and resources to breast cancer patients and survivors. The downside is that you need to always consider the source when getting information from the Internet. As with any scary issue, myths and misinformation abound. If the information comes from a reputable organization like the American Cancer Society or the National Breast Cancer Foundation, it's likely to be trustworthy. But some unscrupulous outfits will invoke the names of these worthy organizations when, in fact, there's no endorsement or affiliation at all. Check the organization's web site to compare what you've heard to what's actually posted there. Your doctor is your most valuable resource for cancer information. Run any new information by him or her before acting on it.
