An extensive guide for cancer patients and their families.

Praise for the previous hardcover edition:
"…an excellent resource…Recommended."—The Book Report

Coauthored by the associate chief oncologist at St. Vincent's Hospital in New York City and a medical writer with a specialty in gerontology, The Cancer Dictionary, Third Edition is a clear and concise reference guide for cancer patients and their families that is designed to provide much-needed information to allay most common fears and address everyday concerns.

This comprehensive guide is meant to provide the cancer patient and general public with easy access to areas of information that are often hard to locate, or when found, are hard for the layperson to understand. The goal of this work is to include every term or treatment that the non-medical reader is likely to encounter, and to provide in accessible language the information required to understand that term or concept. With more than 2,500 definitions and terms, The Cancer Dictionary, Third Edition provides a wealth of information within a user-friendly format.

Coverage includes the individual cancers—causes, incidence, symptoms, diagnosis, stages, and treatments; diagnostic tests; surgical procedures; therapeutic drugs; types of radiation therapy; biological therapy, side effects, risk factors; carcinogens; prevention; support services; and organizations.

Entries include breast cancer, bone marrow transplantation, laser therapy, pap smear, statin, tamoxifen, tumor, and many more. Also included are noteworthy Web sites of national organizations for cancer and AIDS, comprehensive cancer centers by state, clinical cancer centers by state, as well as a bibliography and an index.
