More About This Title QuickFACTS Advanced Cancer
Although advanced cancer is not likely to be cured, it can frequently be controlled, and this book emphasizes that all patients should be well-informed decision-makers in planning their own treatment. Covering everything from risk factors to living well after cancer treatment, this pocket-sized reference provides critical questions to ask your healthcare team, is updated with the latest patient treatment guidelines, and includes an advanced dictionary of cancer-related terms.
The American Cancer Society is a grassroots organization committed to fighting cancer through balanced programs of research, education, patient service, rehabilitation, and advocacy. Its goals emphasize prevention, early detection, and screening; comprehensive treatment information; answers to questions about insurance, money, and planning for the future; and strategies for coping with the physical symptoms and emotional effects of cancer. They are based in Atlanta.
