NCCN Patient Guide for Anal Cancer

tanda Member Posts: 174 Member

NCCN(National Comprehensive Cancer Network) has issued an EXCELLENT booklet of guidelines for anal cancer patients.  It is up to date and comprehensive on details relating to this cancer.

I wish that there had been some publication like this on day 1...discussing symptoms, testing, diagnosis, treatments ,side effects, follow-up/surveillance, discussion of staging, vocabulary,questions to ask your doctors, other information sources,etc.


you may have to go to and set up a free account in order to view their different guidelines. I am unable to paste the pdf, but it is absolutely worth seeking it out.
