  1. Just to let you know, the “Pictorial Lesson in Breast Cancer” link is broken. But (getting rid of the 2 from the file name) works – is this the intended version?

    P.S. I like the site – thanks.

    • Hi Joel, thank you for letting me know- I will re-load the presentation and hopefully it will work this time. Glad you like the site – please feel free to give any ideas for improving it.


  2. Me again – the “Pictorial lesson in GI cancers” link doesn’t work.

    Liking the MSK and colorectal powerpoints especially. Thanks!

    • Thank you Joel – I have corrected it, so it should work now. Thank you for pointing it out.

  3. Sorry, me again! I thought I’d have a look at the “Oncology Neutropenic Sepsis protocol” before having a go at the quiz, but the link doesn’t work. Thanks again, keep up the good work!

  4. Just to say that the ‘Patient care during radiotherapy’ link is broken. Thanks!
