How to Manage
Your Symptoms

If you have cancer you may get side effects from treatment or symptoms from the cancer. We have created 10 patient guides to help you and your loved ones manage your symptoms. The guides are filled with easy to understand, practical tips for what you should do and when to get help from your healthcare team.

Information in the guides is not medical advice. Please discuss your side effects and symptoms with your healthcare team.

Funds for translation are provided by the Elizabeth Walters Patient Education Fund, Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
