'Should I be Tested For Cancer, Maybe Not and Here¿s Why.'
'Should I be Tested For Cancer, Maybe Not and Here¿s Why.' by Dr. H. Gilbert Welch is an eye-opening and empowering book for anyone facing the decision to undergo cancer screening and possibly become caught in the medical testing quagmire. I discovered Dr. Welch¿s book at a time when I was facing this medical dilemma myself. The book brings to light many problematic issues regarding the usefulness and validity of cancer screening and testing, which I believe most of us as consumers are not aware of. In particular, Dr. Welch makes the point that, for a variety of reasons, cancer screening/testing may not always be as beneficial as we the consumer have been lead to believe. Dr. Welch¿s book provides a rational perspective to our society¿s fear of the threat of cancer. He offers the reader a wealth of information that I believe will help others to make a better informed decision when faced with the issue of cancer screening /testing and possible subsequent treatment. I found his book to be very helpful in alleviating my feelings of fear and helplessness when faced with my own cancer scare. After reading this timely book, my wife and I feel we can be in a position to have a partnership in any future decisions we make with our physicians regarding the choice to undergo cancer screening and/or testing and treatment.
