Is the internet reliable?

The internet gives access to a large number of people and organisations that publish information about cancer. However it is important to understand that the internet is open to anyone who wishes to publish information and there is no regulation of the information or its accuracy. It can be distressing to learn new information if you are not ready for it or if there is no one around to discuss it with. Remember that everyone is different and not all information you obtain will apply to your situation.
