to advance patient-relevant research in kidney cancer

Welcome to the MYQOL (My Quality of Life)
Kidney Cancer Patient Registry

Help us evaluate the usefulness of a recently developed on-line registry for kidney cancer patients (called 'MYQOL' which stands for My Quality of Life) by participating in this 1-year study. You are eligible to participate if you are 18 years or older and have been diagnosed with kidney cancer.

MYQOL registry participants enter information about their disease, treatment, symptoms, health status, and quality of life into an on-line, password-protected database on a regularly scheduled basis. Participants can use the registry to track many of their symptoms and their health status over time and to compare themselves (anonymously) with other groups of people (for example, how their level of fatigue compares with the average level of fatigue reported by other participants in the registry). The information collected in the registry can be used by research scientists to better understand the impact of disease symptoms and treatments on the health status and quality of life of those with kidney cancer. Registry participants will be offered opportunities to join in other research studies when available.
