About this booklet

This booklet is about making treatment decisions. It is for anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer. It might also be helpful for carers, family members and friends.

The booklet explains how you can find out information about your treatment options. It discusses some things that may help when making treatment decisions.

We hope it helps you deal with some of the questions or feelings you may have. We cannot give advice about the best treatment for you. You should talk to your doctor, who knows your medical history.
