As you cope with cancer and cancer treatment, you need to have honest, open discussions with your doctor. You should feel comfortable asking any question no matter how small it might seem. Nurses, social workers, and other members of the treatment team may also be able to answer many of your questions.
Along with these examples, be sure to write down some of your own. For instance, you might want to know more about recovery times so that you can plan your work schedule. Or you may want to ask about second opinions or about clinical trials.
Our team is made up of doctors and oncology certified nurses with deep knowledge of cancer care as well as journalists, editors, and translators with extensive experience in medical writing.
