Here are some of the cancer communities top pages: anal cancer symptoms, prostate cancer symptoms, and kidney cancer symptoms. We have a lot of symptoms listed that are straight from cancer patients, not doctors.

Blog for a Cure also has a tight group of cancer warriors helping each other out. These are some of our top groups: anal cancer survivors, lung cancer survivors, and breast cancer survivors. Some times it is difficult to talk about anal cancer symptoms and treatment with your friends and family but the warriors on here get it.

Some times it is hard to find what you are looking for in these communities and with so many pages. Please contact us, if there is something particular you are looking for and can't find it.
