Cancer Research UK patient information
The about cancer section of the website provides detailed but easily accessible information on cancer, its treatments and clinical trials for anyone affected by cancer.
The site covers more than 95% of the cancers diagnosed in the UK, including many rare cancers. There is also a wealth of information on cancer treatments, complementary and alternative therapies and issues associated with living with cancer. We also have a unique clinical trials database, which provides information about UK clinical trials in plain English.
We include diagrams, videos and animations wherever possible to help explain difficult concepts, to help people know what to expect or how to do something. For example, we have diagrams showing what is removed during surgery and videos and animations about tests and treatments.
