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

Cancer diagnosis and alternative cancer treatments

In this section, ´Your Cancer´, you will be able to read all about your cancer - from breast cancer, to lung cancer, and colon cancer to prostate cancer, with reviews and articles written by some of the top experts in the West. All in an easy-to-read, easy-to-understand magazine style, originally from icon magazine. And that´s what we are: The cancer magazine on the web.

You will also 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 by going to the top right of this page. You can quickly access complementary cancer therapies and also new or alternative cancer therapies using the other two boxes on the top right of this page.

CANCERactive gives you more!

Just above this article, you will see a ´drop down´ box which says ´Please Select´ Click on it to pull down all the cancers and connect to the cancer you are most interested in. And off you go. There will be an overview, maybe some quick tips, the very latest news and information, links to the drugs you may be using, perhaps one cancer survivor´s own story of how they tackled this cancer, complementary therapies that might help, references to cancer and diet and which herbal compounds might help and much more, written in conjunction with professors, oncologists and doctors. Each detailed and comprehensive overview will tell you the orthodox view and far, far more. One US Charity recently described our Breast Cancer overview as the best available in the world!

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 60+ page, full colour magazine available quarterly 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, that´s 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 don´t 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

Each ´Overview´ on each cancer will detail symptoms, diagnosis and all the possible causes and all the treatments that are being used, not just in the UK but in countries like the USA, Germany and Japan. We receive over 60 cancer research newsletters from top worldwide cancer centres and we check it and then bring it straight to you, so that you can give yourself the very best chance of beating this disease. Some are 24 pages long so you may want to print off a copy and read it several times at your leisure.

You will 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.
