Medical Terms

We understand that the information you receive regarding a new diagnosis can be overwhelming. Often times, as you continue to learn more about your diagnosis, you may come across unfamiliar medical terminology, or topics that you’d like to learn more about. The National Cancer Institute/National Institutes of Health have provided this valuable resource (Dictionary of Cancer Terms) which allows you to search for cancer & medical-related terms and gives easy-to-understand definitions. We encourage you to take advantage of this resource and to reach out to your HOA care team with any additional questions that you may have!
