Submit a Symptom Management Overview

Readers are invited to submit brief updates with practice insights on the care of a specific symptom or cluster of symptoms associated with a condition often seen in patients with cancer. The updates will be presented in the form of a “How I Treat” type of article.

The goal of this section is to present a quick background to enhance providers’ understanding of the symptoms associated with a specific condition, their characteristic presentation(s), and etiology. The emphasis should be on a concise description of available treatments and current course of therapy.

Each review should provide a brief description of the symptom(s) associated with a common condition in oncology, and its evidence-based management.
