If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, knowing what to expect and making plans for how to proceed can help make this stressful time easier. Building a strong partnership with a caring and committed primary care physician, or PCP, is one of the most important first steps you can take in protecting your health. This can be hard to do when our doctors have less time than ever before to care for us the way they want to. This is why it's helpful to have a cancer treatment plan and survivorship plan that can help you keep everyone informed.
