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.
Patient Guides by cancer type
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.

Patient Guide on Survivorship
Survivorship is a unique and ongoing experience, which is different for each person and those close to them. A key to survivorship is to regain, as far as possible, the important aspects of life before cancer, and to find new pathways to a satisfactory life going forward. The Patient Guide on Survivorship is created by ESMO and ECPC in collaboration with IPOS.
The Patient Guide on Survivorship is available in Slovak.
Patient Guide on Cancer Pain Management
Patients with cancer commonly experience pain due to the cancer itself, the cancer treatment, or a combination of both. This patient guide provides up-to-date guidance on the types of treatments for cancer pain and any possible side effects of its treatment.
The Patient Guide on Cancer Pain Management is available in Slovak.
