A cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming…so can the terms used to describe your diagnosis. We're kicking off a "Learn the Lingo" series to help you better understand.

More cancer terminology is available in our Glossary of Cancer Terms: http://www.trcc.org/glossary/ ‪#‎understandingcancer‬

Smoking is a proven cause of many chronic illnesses, including lung cancer. Yet, 28% of Erie County adults report being smokers, much higher than the national average.

It’s September again and that means its Gynecologic Cancer Awareness month. This may not mean much to a lot of people, but it means a whole lot to the 80,000 women per year in the United States who are diagnosed with a gynecologic cancer.
