In “Understanding the Social Mechanism of Cancer Misinformation Spread on YouTube and Lessons Learned: Infodemiological Study” (J Med Internet Res 2022;24(11):e39571), the authors made the following changes.

1. The Acknowledgments section was inadvertently excluded in the originally published article.

In the corrected version, the following statement has been added under the new Acknowledgments section.

This study was supported by the National R&D Program for Cancer Control through the National Cancer Center (NCC) funded by the Ministry of Health & Welfare, Republic of Korea (HA21C0048).

2. In the originally published article, Affiliations 7 and 8 were incorrectly presented as two separate affiliations.

In the corrected version, Affiliation 7 is revised as follows to present the original two affiliations:

Yonsei Cancer Center, Yonsei University Health System, Seoul, Republic of Korea

The updated list of affiliations and its attribution to the authors are as follows:

Ho Young Yoon1; Kyung Han You2; Jung Hye Kwon3,4,5; Jung Sun Kim3; Sun Young Rha6,7; Yoon Jung Chang8; Sang-Cheol Lee9
