Checking the Validity of Breast Cancer Information

With the invention of the Internet there is a vast amount of information available about breast cancer facts that is just a click away. Unfortunately, it is not possible to trust everything read on the Internet. Even with breast cancer, there are myths and false information available. If you are looking for breast cancer information, always consider the source. Chances are, the information on breast cancer is reliable if it comes directly from a reputable organization like the American Cancer Society or the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Beware of information that claims to be endorsed by an organization that does not sound familiar. E-mails sent to you with phrases like "According to the American Cancer Society...", should be investigated at the organization's website to check the validity of the information. However, the most valuable source of information on breast cancer is your doctor. Your doctor will be able to answer any questions you might have and dispel any myths.
