Cancer is one of the most important medical issues that we face. It is estimated that more than 2 million Americans will be diagnosed with some kind of cancer this year. In fact, a child born this year has a 1 in 2 (for men) or 1 in 3 (for women) chance of getting a cancer in his/her lifetime.

As a country we will spend over $125 billion on cancer care. But the good news is that we are getting better at finding early cancers, which gives you a better chance of getting cured. We are also investing a lot of money and resources in new treatments that we hope will improve cure rates and help reduce the complications of treatment. But the key to this success remains early diagnosis when the chance of cure is highest.

We at ISH have teamed with over 100 of the leading cancer doctors in the world to create this site and the information you will see. It is designed so that you can become familiar with cancer and its causes, diagnoses, treatments and what you might face after treatments. We hope that it will give you the power to better understand what you and/or your family is facing and allow you to make better choices based on information and knowledge.

It is written so that when you meet your doctors you will have an opportunity to understand the medical terms that often sound like a foreign language. It contains sections on general items such as insurance issues and patients' legal rights as well as specific discussions of cancer types and sites. This website belongs to you. If you like it, tell a friend or family member. Also, if you have any suggestions on how we can make it better, use email to let us know.
