American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Patient Education

The American Cancer Society is one of the AJCC’s 22 member organizations. Through our collaboration with multidisciplinary organizations, like the American Cancer Society, we are dedicated to cancer surveillance and to improving care and providing current cancer education for physicians, registrars, and patients.

In the Cancer Basics resource, American Cancer Society provides the public with answers to some of the basic questions about cancer, such as what it is, what some of the common signs and symptoms are, and how many people it affects.
