Cancer is a complex chronic disease with varieties of treatment and management options. There are various tumors and types that behave differently and require different types of treatment.  Therefore, to learn the most up-to-date risk factors, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatments for the diverse types of cancer, the WPAHS is linking all patient education to the most up to date on-line resources.
