A new diagnosis of cancer can be a shock, making you feel out of control and overwhelmed. Getting informed can help alleviate these feelings. We suggest consulting various reputable resources to learn more about your diagnosis, address cancer symptoms and investigate your treatment options for your type and stage of cancer.
Resources should include your health care team, second opinions, books, the Internet and other patients with your disease. As you learn, identify the specific questions that only your doctor can answer. Make a list and address them at your next appointment. We have included many trusted online resources here on our site to help you supplement the information you get from your Jones Clinic physician.
