The National Comprehensive Cancer Network has published a newly-translated Italian version of the NCCN Guidelines for Patients for stomach cancer, funded by the NCCN Foundation thanks to No Stomach for Cancer.

Over the past year, the NCCN Foundation also worked with the Kidney Cancer Association to translate patient guidelines for kidney cancer into Chinese, Czech, German, and Spanish.

The guidelines are available free-of-charge at NCCN’s website or via through their app. Print copies of the NCCN Guidelines for Patients are available on for a nominal fee.

In 2017 alone, the NCCN Guidelines for Patients were viewed more than eight million times by nearly 400,000 individuals, worldwide. The library currently contains 39 different guidelines, including breast, colon, lung, and prostate cancers.


In the days leading up to the 2021 American Society of Clinical Oncology annual meeting, The Cancer Letter published a piece focused on Axel Grothey’s unethical sexual relationships with women he mentored while at Mayo Clinic. While this news was met by some as shocking, science tells us it is anything but.
