For the May-June issue of the Journal of Community and Supportive Oncology, the Editor in Chief, Dr David Henry, discusses an editorial by Kevin Knopf, a JCSO editor, about drawing on modern portfolio theory to improve cancer care. Side effects come under scrutiny this issue, with a How We Do It article on prehabilitation for lymphedema in head and neck cancer patients, a Review article that examines pancreatitis associated with newer classes of antineoplastic therapies, and a research article that looks at prescriber adherence to antiemetic guidelines with trifluridine-tipiracil. In other research articles, investigators report on physician attitudes and prevalence of molecular testing in lung cancer; a comprehensive assessment of cancer survivors’ concerns to inform program development; and perceived financial hardship among patients with advanced cancer. Two Case Reports address the treatment of Kaposi sarcoma in patients with AIDS, and a third describes a rare case of hypoglycemia induced by a classic gastrointestinal stromal tumor. Finally, Dr Henry summarizes an in-depth interview on cardiotoxicity, which he did with his colleague, Dr Joseph Carver.
