Cancer Patients & Info From Internet

Study: Cancer Patients Get Info From the Internet [06/11/2001; Reuters Health]

Many cancer patients are turning to the Internet for information about their disease, according to the results of a recent study. In light of this finding, ``physicians need to become educated about the various Internet sites so they can steer patients to sites that offer the most reliable, accurate and updated information,'' Dr. James M. Metz of the University of Pennsylvania Cancer Center in Philadelphia told Reuters Health.

He presented his findings recently at the American Society of Clinical Oncology's annual meeting in San Francisco.
