Guides for Patients are designed to assist patients, their relatives and caregivers to better understand the nature of different types of cancer and evaluate the best available treatment choices.
Produced by ESMO these guides translate complex medical information into a language understandable to patients. The medical information is based on the ESMO Clinical Practice Guidelines, which are designed to guide medical oncologists in the diagnosis, follow-up and treatment in different cancer types and conditions.
The Patient Guides in Russian language are kindly provided by the Russian Society of Clinical Oncology (RUSSCO).
This guide provides information on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on various aspects of cancer care, including possible changes to your treatment plan and appointments, which may be necessary to keep you safe from infection.
