A new app called Cancergraph is available, which can track all of your treatment symptoms and side effects when going through cancer. When dealing with treatment, there can be many taxing symptoms and side effects, and keeping track of them all for future discussions with your doctor, albeit important, can be quite difficult. It’s crucial to have an accurate record for your doctor, as this can affect your treatment options. This new, free app, created by Malecare, allows you to keep record of it all.
With the app, you can select 5 symptoms from a list of over 200. When a symptom is selected, you then rate it on a 5 point scale. All data is placed into a color-coded graph so you have it to show your healthcare professional at your next appointment. If you need to add more than five symptoms, you can use the journal feature to write anything you deem necessary to remember and share. You can add 5 symptoms each time you open the app, and the app can hold years of side effect records. You may also attach any photos related to the data you input. You can also record when you have good days with no symptoms, since this information is important as well. The app can send updates of clinical trials, and lets you opt to share your information for research purposes, withholding your identity.
