The Cancer Society's aim is to to provide easy-to-understand and accurate information on cancer, its treatments and the support available. Our cancer information booklets are reviewed every four years (sheets every two to three) by cancer doctors, specialist nurses and other relevant health professionals to ensure the medical information is reliable, evidence-based and up-to-date. The booklets are also checked by consumers to ensure they meet the needs of people with cancer.
