Q. Where can I find the latest treatment and research that is being done regarding cervical cancer?
Government institutions such as the National Cancer Institute (NCI) are reliable resources in locating information on cancer. NCI is the United States government’s agency for cancer research. It provides current information on cancer data, research programs and clinical trials on all types of cancers. You can contact NCI at 1-800-4-CANCER or www.cancer.gov. They provide a comprehensive booklet, What You Need To Know About Cancer of the Cervix.
Nonprofit organizations, like CancerCare and The National Cervical Cancer Coalition (NCCC), are also resources that can provide you with individualized assistance specific to your needs. By contacting these organizations, you may be connected with individuals that can provide you with support in the form of information, education, outreach and networking regarding cervical cancer.
- NCCC has an area on its website entitled, Health News, which outlines current cervical cancer information and research from the Center for Disease Control (CDC). You can also call NCCC at 1-800-685-5531.
- CancerCare’s publication, Your Guide to the Latest Cancer Research and Treatments: Cervical Cancer, reviews highlights from American Society of Clinical Oncology. You can learn more about additional services CancerCare offers those who’ve been diagnosed with cervical cancer (and their loved ones) in our cervical cancer website section.
