Finding Trustworthy Web Sites on Breast Cancer

If you are trying to find breast cancer Web sites and having difficulties, it is recommended that you visit the Web sites of national and governmental organizations. These websites are primary places to find factual, up-to-date, and non-biased information on breast cancer. However, it is important to always check when the information you are reading was last updated. There is always new research being published in this field, and information from years ago may no longer apply. When finding a breast cancer site, be careful of information posted by someone who might have a hidden agenda. Sometimes people will start their own breast cancer Web site to report a new discovery, but much of the information reported might be skewed by personal opinion or are trying to get you to purchase a product. In general, stick to well known, unbiased sources that cross-reference their facts, and always compare what you read about breast cancer online with other Web sites and the advice of your own doctor.
