Liver transplant for cholangiocarcinoma - Cancer - MedHelp
Several patients/families advise each other on liver cancer/transplants. @wayne1343 gives a standout contribution that shows that laymen/patients can be very well informed. Note that several participants suggest hospitals and physicians around the country for the specific procedure under discussion. This is remarkable as it shows how patients are partners to physicians now; they do not have the training of med professionals, but they often become very well informed in forums like this one.

Soft Lump on Head - Cancer - MedHelp
Thread useful for learning since it exhibits effective and not effective posts. OP @johnny2020 gives incomplete info, so MD @bhumikamd asks questions to get more complete data. @johnny2020 answers the Qs, so the MD gives OP a medical reference and encourages further discussion. OP gives the forum an update after 10 months. Several other posters pile on, but their posts contain little data & reflect the need to be heard. I don't mean to diminish this need, but without giving details or framing what kind of help they want, they reduce the chance they'll get responses. And none did.

vocal cord cancer - Cancer - MedHelp
Excellent example of a cancer patient having a detailed discussion with a physician in a public forum about patient's recovery from radiation and chemotherapy for her throat cancer. It shows that MDs can and do have medical discussions in digital public; @heinrikmd serves @lolita620 in several rounds of questions. Note that specific (technical) details greatly increase the quality of the interaction; vagueness acts as a wet blanket. @heinrikmd's first response indirectly invites more detail.

Long thread of several patients, and a physician, on post-operative experiences from cancer-related kidney operations. Note that participants' level of knowledge varies widely. The most valuable contributions use facts to support their questions or assertions; opinions are far less valuable unless they also include facts.
