Disease Information & Support


The Word:


Make any treatment decisions in consultation with your doctor. You may also want to speak with one or more specialists before deciding on treatment.

To learn more about your disease and treatment options, you can get information from several sources, including:

  • medical news articles
  • reports of scientific studies about treatment safety and effectiveness

You can find medical news and scientific research articles in newspapers, magazines, on the Internet and in medical journals. However, make sure the information you read is from a reliable source.

Scientific research should answer three questions:

  1. What was the purpose of the research study?
  2. How was the research conducted?
  3. What did the researchers find - in other words, what were the results?
