Your Cancer - help, support, information, news, treatments

CANCERactive and your specific cancer, by type

Just above this article, you will see YOUR CANCER in the black horizontal bar. Click on it and a world of cancer will drop down. For example - if you want to look up your cancer type - whether it's breast cancer or leukaemia, or lung cancer or colorectal click on YOUR CANCER above and then YOUR CANCER TYPE from the drop down box and connect to the cancer you are most interested in. 

There will be a main 'Overview'. A single article and a really comprehensive look at symptoms, causes, staging and a whole variety of possible treatments from orthodox to immunotherapy, and from complementary to alternative cancer treatments and the latest emerging treatments from around the World. Around it will be other articles to empower you to build a complete picture of your cancer and to help you take control. You will be able to read reviews and articles written by some of the top experts in the West. All in our easy-to-read, easy-to-understand magazine style, originally from icon magazine. And that's what we aim to be: The cancer magazine on the web.

One US Charity described our Breast Cancer overview as the best available in the world!

Cancer diagnosis and alternative cancer treatments

Also on the drop down list, you will find some useful general articles like What is cancer? and under Cancer General some quick tips to get you started and save you time hunting all over the Internet. These general articles on cancer really will save you a lot of time. You can also quickly access any drugs that have been suggested by your oncologist. And by opening the heading 'Orthodox, Complementary, Integrative and Alternative cancer treatments' you can quickly access a world of Complementary and Integrative Medicine (CIM) with complementary cancer therapies and also new or alternative cancer therapies.

The magazine on the web!

We are the only UK charity bringing you comprehensive, evidence-based information across the board in this way. It all originates in icon, (Integrative Cancer and Oncology News) our unique 40+ page, full colour magazine available and free in over 640 UK cancer Hospitals, Complementary cancer centres and Health units in major Libraries.

Want to receive the very latest, hot information? Click here 

Remember, our magazine icon is written by professional journalists, supported by professors, doctors and scientists, thats why they are easy to read, bringing you a vast array of information in an accessible and easy-to-understand way; Patientspeak, not Doctorspeak.

Cancer Watch is our research heart. Every month we cover the latest research on all manner of things you might like to know, from drug side-effects to natural compounds that help fight cancer.

You can print off any article and read it at your leisure.

We dont intend to be all embracing; we doubt any charity could cover it all. But we genuinely believe that by covering complementary, alternative and new therapies on top of the orthodox ones, and by including the UK's most comprehensive library on possible causes and cancer prevention, we are giving you a whole lot more than any other UK cancer charity site.

CANCERactive is still young. As we develop, so will this site.

More information, so you can make more informed personal choices

In the drop down box above you will find links to Support Groups in your area, or to Cancer Survivors Stories.

You may also find links, for example to the latest news items, pulled from our magazine section Cancer Watch. These offer the latest research studies, science and therapies from all over the world.

If you do have a cancer, we urge you not to stop with this section. Go to prevention, go to treatments, and even read the stories of people who have beaten their cancers. This website is all about giving you highly useable information.

You may have an oestrogen-driven cancer. So why not read Pillar II of the 4 Pillars of Cancer and find out all about it. (Come to think of it, you really should read all four!. They will tell you what factors might have caused - and might still be maintaining - your cancer). You might also to do well look at the sections on prostate or breast cancer? Elsewhere on the site you will find all about the effects of this hormone, and how you can do simple things to cut it out of your life. After all, that is what your doctor is trying to do. (You could start with  As Safe as Houses )

You could try reading our books. Each is designed to provide really usable information in an easy-to-read fashion. You may even want to receive our magazine - your cancer may be covered in the next issue! Or sign up for our e-newsletter (see panel on the left of this page). It will regularly bring you the latest worldwide information and research, probably well before your doctor even knows it.
