More treatment information for eye cancer

For more details on treatment options — including some that may not be addressed in this document — the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) are good sources of information.

The NCI, part of the US National Institutes of Health, provides treatment information by phone (1-800-4-CANCER) and on its website (www.cancer.gov). Detailed information intended for use by cancer care professionals is also available on www.cancer.gov.

The NCCN, made up of experts from many of the nation’s leading cancer centers, develops cancer treatment guidelines for doctors to use when treating patients. These are available on the NCCN website (www.nccn.org). The NCCN has treatment guidelines for melanoma of the skin and for central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma, but not specifically for cancers of the eye.
