Finding Information Online
The Women's Cancer Center of Nevada believes that the more informed you are, the more comfortable you will be making the decisions that best meet your health and lifestyle needs. The library contains published research and articles by our own physicians, while other sections of this website contain detailed information about our areas of specialty: laparoscopic cancer surgery, cytroreductive surgery and pelvic reconstruction and urogynecology.
- Searching the Internet for the information about cancer can lead to competent, well researched data that is helpful and enlightening. Unfortunately, you may also find advice that is questionable, hard to interpret, out of date-or even dangerous. The good news is that there are steps you can take to ensure that the information you gather will be reliable. We strongly recommend you read the "Getting Started" guide in our articles section.
- Under the best of circumstances, it's easy to get information overload in the digital age! After a recent diagnosis, or while you are undergoing treatment, you may feel particularly overwhelmed. Take things slowly, and consider letting someone else help you research. Also, be sure to discuss any questions or concerns you have with your physician.
- The Internet is a dynamic entity, it changes all the time. We cannot guarantee that the excellent link we looked at yesterday will still be there in the morning. Your help in keeping our links "fresh" would be gratefully accepted. Just use the Contact Us page and let us know.
