How to Read a Medical Press Release: Part 2 MIDNIGHT SPECIAL

1.  Get a phone number of the person or institution sending the release.  Or if all else fails, get email address.

2.  Insist that terms be defined.  No exceptions.  If a term needs definition, repeat step 1.  Call them.

My personal pet peeve is calling something carcinoma in situ, then telling me it's not cancer.  Let us know what medical lingo you don't trust.

I wish you health.
