Top 10 Cancer apps

When a person with cancer learns his diagnosis, he starts a new life. And the main goal of this life is to cure the disease. And the approach to the treatment should be very-very responsible. The patient should do his best to help doctors in finding the most effective treatment strategy. Everything is complicated by the fact that the cancer treatment - is rather complicated. It includes a variety of medications and medical procedures that are not always carried out in hospital under medical supervision. Therefore, the use of software for personal health records is a must in this case.

In addition, cancer patients often turn to several doctors for help, so it's important to have a complete medical history on the hands: what treatments have already been held and what were the results.

Cancer apps help to keep track of all simptoms, medications, procedures and provide a journal of their medical records to the doctor.

Another important function of Cancer Apps - is psychological support. Many Cancer Apps form a community of people with oncology conditions, where patients can communicate and support each other.
