In brief: Source is important

Information from search engines is "unfiltered" and can be devastating if misinterpreted.
Only people quite familiar with all aspects of your disease can accurately give you initial prognostic information. However, once you know the details (exact disease type, stage, special studies like markers or chromosome analysis) you can use this to help evaluate information on the web from reliable sites.
