Cancer presents many challenges to patients and their families. At Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey, we believe that well informed patients can better deal with those challenges.
Knowledge about cancer helps patients to become active participants in their health care. Knowing about cancer risk factors can help people prevent certain cancers.
Awareness of early warning signs can lead to earlier detection, when cancer is in the most treatable stages. The Resource and Learning Center (RLC) provides reliable, relevant and current information about all aspects of cancer.
