Welcome to the McGill University Hospital Centre’s (MUHC) Patient Education Guides.

We hope that the information you find here will help you better understand your cancer and key types of treatments (surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and hormone therapy) offered here at the MUHC. This Guide will help you make decisions about your care and prepare you for the discussions that you will have with the different members of your treatment team.

This is a difficult time for you and your family; it is our sincere desire that this MUHC Patient Education Guide support you through your care at the MUHC.

Please note: This MUHC Patient Education Guide is for information only. It is not meant to take the place of the advice you receive from your treatment team, which will be individualized as a care plan that is specific to your unique situation. Speak to your treatment team if you have questions or concerns. If you have a medical emergency, call your doctor or go to the emergency department right away.
