WHAT THE C?!? /// CHAPTER 7
Getting the
Right Info
Not knowing what's going on can be stressful. Having the correct information
is an important way to help you deal with your cancer. It might also help to give
you a sense of control when everything else seems out of control.
Ask your medical team as many
questions as you like about anything
you are curious or worried about.
Use the internet when you have
burning questions after you've left the
doctor's office (isn't that how it always
happens?), but also check out the info
with your doctor next visit to make sure
it really pertains to you.
Without stating the obvious, the internet
is a great source of information. But as
we all know it is also full of some pretty
weird stuff. That's not always helpful
when you are trying to get accurate and
useful information.
Here are a few tips to make your Googling a bit more successful.
» Always check the source of the information. Information on the net can be
misleading or out of date. Look at where the information is coming from.
Can you find contact information for the people behind the website? What
is the purpose of the website - information or advertising? There are many
reliable cancer organizations that have great information that is accurate
and up to date.
» Don't believe it all. If the claims in an article seem too good to be true, then
they probably are. Living with cancer can make us all very open to promises
of cures and miracle treatments. If it starts with something like " I cured my
own cancer in three weeks " or " The facts the medical profession won't tell
you, " chances are it is not a reliable site. People have all sorts of reasons
for putting stuff on the web. It's a good idea to check out the claims being
made on the internet with your parents, the doctors or nurses or a trusted
web source. Most doctors are happy for you to print out something you
have found on the internet and bring it to your appointment to ask their
opinion on it.
Recommended Websites to
Look Up Information About
Your Cancer:
* American Cancer Society -
https://www.cancer.org/
* Cancer.Net -
https://www.cancer.net/
* National Cancer Institute -
https://www.cancer.gov/
* National Comprehensive
Cancer Network -
https://www.nccn.org/
» What they don't tell you. Every treatment has risks and benefits. If the
site doesn't mention both the good and bad bits, it may not be telling the
whole story. If you hear about a treatment from one website, look for other
evidence that backs it up on another website.
» Make sure you are searching the right stuff. Each cancer is different and
the treatments and outcomes for the same cancer can vary depending on
things like the stage it's at and where it is in your body. Before you head off
into cyberspace, make sure you have as much information about your own
cancer as possible. This could save you from unnecessarily freaking out.
» Use the web information as a starting point. Information found on the web
can be a good way to start a conversation with your family or your medical
team. It may give you questions that you hadn't thought of and help you
to get a better understanding of some things. You might also be able to
connect with people in a similar situation who will understand what you are
going through.
Good
