What is Cancernet?
We are an independent organisation comprising of a multidisciplinary of group of health professionals and cancer survivors. contains educational advice sheets for patients affected by cancer, their relatives and health professionals. It has identified the areas and levels of information which patients need to help them make decisions, cope with the side effects of therapy and help them make informed lifestyle choices.  It also provides a useful resource for services which may be useful after a diagnosis of cancer such as support groups, academic and commercial organisations. The information provided is not a substitute for professional care and should not be used for diagnosing or treating a health problem or a disease. If you have, or suspect you have, a health problem you should consult your doctor. Inclusion or exclusion of any product does not imply that its use is either advocated or rejected. Use of trade names is for production identification only and does not imply endorsement. This site has no formal connection with others of a similar or related name in the UK or internationally.

Although our editorial team make great efforts to ensure the written materials are up to date and accurate, with the rapidly changing face of oncology management there may be pages which need updating from time to time. if you have an issue or stop an area of the site which could be improved we would appreciate your feedback.
