Young people and cancer

This guide from Clic Sargent gives the basics about cancer, treatment and its side effects, for young people aged 16 to 24. It was extensively updated with the invaluable help of cancer experts, and teenagers and young adults who have experienced cancer themselves. I also researched and co-authored Clic Sargent's website information on relationships and sex (highly commended in the BMA Patient Information Awards 2016), and cancer and fertility. All of this work conforms with the NHS England Information Standard for user involvement, referencing and peer review.
