Hearing you have cancer is never easy. It often takes time to accept the news even when you expect it. Talking to your doctor and having your questions answered are important parts of your treatment. Being prepared for your appointments will make the best use of both your time and your doctors. Being prepared is also the best way to get the information you need. Here are some suggestions that may help.
