  • The Internet can be an exciting place, a potential source of useful information, even a meaningful way to connect with other people. However, it can also be a source of confusion and frustration. People seeking insights into cancer prevention, cancer diagnosis or cancer treatment options frequently feel this way. Answers to basic important questions like "what is cancer, how do you get cancer, and what are the symptoms of cancer," can range dramatically depending on the source. It's easy to become overwhelmed with information overload, unsure of what to believe. If you're a woman newly diagnosed with breast cancer or a man struggling with treatment options for prostate cancer, for instance, you may feel like you’re awash in a stormy sea, unable to find any firm ground. THECANCERMD.com and the cancer guidebook that it supports, When Cancer Hits Home, were both generated to help alleviate that problem. Hopefully, visitors and readers will feel informed and empowered, able to find some refuge against that storm. AN EMPOWERED PATIENT IS THE BEST WEAPON AGAINST CANCER! - Patrick Maguire, MD
