If you google a particular type of cancer, you might get some really crazy websites, some with old or just inaccurate information.  Here are a few of the best sources:

Cancer.net – This site has information from the American Society of Clinical Oncology, but in lay terms.  Here you’ll find information on all types of cancer and  results of recent research in an easy-to-read format.  There is information in Spanish as well.

American Cancer Society – This site has information on various cancers, statistics on cancer in the United States, cancer fundraising events, a bookstore, and their various programs.

WebMD Cancer Health Center – This site is easy to navigate with its guides for each type of cancer.  It also has videos and photo slideshows and good information on home care.

Mayo Clinic – This site has all the basics plus good descriptions of the various tests that cancer patients might need.
