 CancerMail was last revised: February 2, 1998. 

CancerMail is a quick and easy way to obtain, through electronic mail, cancer information from the National Cancer Institute (NCI). CancerMail lets you request information statements from the NCI's PDQ database, NCI fact sheets on various topics, and citations and abstracts on selected topics from the CANCERLIT database. Selected information is available in Spanish. You can access CancerMail through a number of different networks including BITNET and Internet. There is no charge for the service unless your local computer center or Internet provider charges for use of e-mail. This Contents List changes at the beginning of each month as new information is included. Request the document cn-400000 for a listing of the items that were added and changed in CancerMail with the last update. CancerMail is an automated system that reads standardized requests and then returns the requested information via electronic mail. CancerMail cannot respond to requests for information that are not found in the system, such as lists of clinical trials. For CancerMail assistance/comment:  

Content questions: cnet-comment@icicc.nci.nih.gov

Technical assistance: cheryl@icicc.nci.nih.gov


1. Address your mail message to:  cancermail@icicc.nci.nih.gov


 Address all requests to cancermail@icicc.nci.nih.gov

 CancerMail responds to your requests based on the address to which they are sent. If you use the reply function of your e-mail, your request will NOT be properly processed by CancerMail.  [If you are not on Internet, you may have to change the format of the address. Consult with your systems manager for the correct address format.]

 2. In the body of the message:

 Enter the CancerMail ID from the Contents List for the desired information. If you need the updated contents list, enter the word "help" in the body of the message ("spanish" if you want the Spanish contents list). If you want more than one piece of information, enter the code for each piece of information on a separate line within the message. Your request must be in the BODY of the message, not the subject line. You can type a subject for your message if you wish, but CancerMail will not read it.  

Examples: To receive the PDQ breast cancer statement for health professionals:

 To: cancermail@icicc.nci.nih.gov


cn-100013 <this is the body of the message..>

 To receive the same statement in Spanish:

 To: cancermail@icicc.nci.nih.gov


cs-100013 <this is the body of the message..>

 To receive two PDQ patient information statements, one on colon

cancer and another on gastric cancer:

 To: cancermail@icicc.nci.nih.gov


cn-200008 <this is the body of the message..>


 To receive an updated contents list (this list):

 To: cancermail@icicc.nci.nih.gov


help <this is the body of the message..>

 To receive a contents list for Spanish CancerMail:

 To: cancermail@icicc.nci.nih.gov


spanish <this is the body of the message..>

 3. End your message. If you requested multiple items within a single request, each item will be returned to you in a separate message. It takes about 10 minutes for you to receive your information, although delays in connections across the Internet may cause you to receive your request later.  

WARNING: Individual statements may exceed 100K and some mail systems are limited in the size of the mail messages a user can receive. Mail systems with size limits may split long messages into multiple parts. Other such systems may simply truncate or reject the mail message without warning. Please check your mail and storage capacity prior to submitting requests. If you do not receive a footer outlined with ***** and a date last modified at the end of your document, the message may have been truncated by your mail system. Contact your local mail administrator about increasing the size limit for mail if you experience problems with truncation or rejection of messages.   The information in CancerMail is updated monthly, and many items change from one month to the next. See the file "monthly PDQ statement changes"(cn-405001) for a detailed accounting of the actual changes made to the PDQ Statements with the last update. If you would like to be notified via electronic mail when CancerMail is updated each month, send a message to CancerMail with the word "subscribe" or "subs" in the body of the message. CancerMail will then send you a message each month telling you what has been updated. [To cancel this service, send a message to CancerMail with the word "unsubscribe" or "unsubs" in the body of the message.]

Summaries from the PDQ Database


 The following lists information summaries from the NCI's PDQ database. PDQ information is reviewed regularly by members of the PDQ Editorial Boards, and many summaries change from one month to the next. Request document cn-405001 for details of changes made to the summaries with the last CancerMail update.  All of the treatment and supportive care summaries are also available in Spanish, as are selected news items. If you would like a statement in Spanish, substitute the prefix "cs-" in front of the number (e.g., cs-100022) to receive the statement on anal cancer in Spanish). Although both the English and Spanish summaries are updated at the same time each month, the Spanish summaries do not reflect the changes made in the English summaries until the following month (to allow time for translation).
