Finding the Latest Information on Breast Cancer
New studies and reports on breast cancer are being published every day. The web sites of the American Cancer Society, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Breast Cancer Foundation can be a treasure trove of new information on prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Look for the web sites of official organizations, which often end in .gov (governement) or .org (non-profit organization) as opposed to the more ubiquitous .com (commercial entities). Anyone can put up a web site offering breast cancer information, but there's no guarantee it's reliable. Official cancer information sites are free, so don't be hoodwinked into paying for information - that's a sure sign of a scam. For hard copies of information, go to your public library. Some of the information may be difficult for you to interpret if you don't have a scientific background, but you can alway bring the most technical information to your doctor for interpretation.
