Brain cancer Health Record Software

People with brain cancer should keep health records to actively participate in their treatment journey and ensure comprehensive care. Maintaining a health journal allows individuals with brain cancer to track symptoms such as headaches, seizures, cognitive changes, and balance difficulties, which can provide insights into the progression of the disease and the impact of treatments. Recording potential triggers, such as stress, certain activities, or environmental factors, can help identify factors that exacerbate their symptoms or affect their well-being.

Additionally, tracking lab test results, such as brain imaging and tumor markers, can provide valuable information on cancer progression and response to treatment. Monitoring medications, including chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or targeted therapies, can ensure adherence to the prescribed treatment plan. Regularly documenting doctor visits, procedures, and their outcomes can also help individuals track their treatment progress and communicate effectively with their healthcare team.

Sample health journal entries that can be entered into Goopatient*:
Date: July 28, 2023
To manage #stress, I will incorporate relaxation exercises and take regular breaks during work. To prevent balance issues, I will be cautious while changing body positions and consider using handrails for support.
Today, I experienced a moderate #headache that persisted for most of the morning. I also had a brief episode of dizziness and difficulty maintaining balance while #walking.
It is possible that the #stress from recent work demands might have contributed to my #headache. The sudden change in body position might have triggered my balance difficulties.
I took my prescribed pain medication #Ibuprofen 200mg to alleviate the headache.
I monitored my body #temperature and #blood_pressure, and the readings were within the normal range.
I have an upcoming #MRI scan scheduled with my oncologist next week to evaluate the tumor's response to the current treatment.
