Cancer: Do You Have Cancer and Problems With Constipation?

You are eligible to participate if you:

  • are 18 years of age or older;
  • have the ability to learn and perform acupressure;
  • are able to read and write English; and
  • have cancer.

You cannot participate if you:

  • have acute illnesses such as fever or active infectious disease;

You will be compensated for your time.

If you interested in participating, first discuss with your physician, then call for more information about the study.
