The Terminologia del càncer (‘Terminology of cancer’) brings together  220 basic terms associated with these diseases. By these works TERMCAT gives its support to La Marató de TV3 this year's program, dedicated to the advances in cancer therapy research, with the aim of contributing to give them greater visibility, from the field of terminology.

The terms come from sectoral terminology work carried out in the ongoing projects in the field of health sciences. The dictionary has been developed in collaboration with experts belonging to Catalan Institute of Oncology and Societat Catalana del Diccionari Enciclopèdic de Medicina, and also in coordination with linguists of ésAdir, the language portal of the Catalan Audiovisual Media Corporation (CCMA), and with Fundació La Marató de TV3.

Each terminological entry contains the preferred denomination in Catalan and the corresponding synonyms, if any; equivalents in Spanish, French and English; a definition in Catalan, and explanatory notes when necessary. It also includes the thematic area or areas each term belongs to.

Clicking on "Consulta de termes" (‘Term search’), terms can be looked up in two ways: using the alphabetical indexes (there is a different index for each language) or using advanced searches in the upper space "Text de la consulta" (‘Text search’) in any of the dictionary languages.
