TIPS FOR SEARCHING THE INTERNET
Lots of information on the web about treatment, trials, research, statistics and services may not be relevant or available in Australia. Not all information you find will be useful, as every patient is unique. There are different types of oesophageal and gastric cancers and stages within the disease.
Discuss the information you find with your doctors and health professionals to check if it is relevant to your condition. Check if the information you find relates to your specific tumour, when it was published, if the website is regularly updated by reputable people, where the data comes from, who published it and if it relates to Australia.
