Cancer Treatment Terms

The following videos were conceived and developed by a team at the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University. The videos were not created by CancerQuest, but are presented here with the permission of the WCI team.

Cancer, and cancer treatment can be very confusing and scary. The videos below are intended to explain cancer-related terms that cancer patients should know.

What is cancer?

What is chemotherapy?

What is curative cancer treatment?

What is palliative cancer treatment?

What does 'risk of infection' mean?

What is a blood count?
