Read an Excerpt

The Cancer Dictionary is the most up-to-date, comprehensive authority available today. Co-authored by a former cancer patient and the associate chief oncologist at St. Vincent's Hospital in New York, this award-winning, A-to-Z resource provides clear and concise information that cancer patients and their families need to intelligently face their fears and concerns. It also guides readers through the latest claims and media hype surrounding this enigmatic disease. The more than 2,500 definitions detail: individual cancers, their causes, incidence levels, stages, and treatment; diagnostic tests; cancer symptoms; surgical procedures; types of radiation therapy, side effects, and risk factors; carcinogens; and prevention.
This revised edition features over 25 new illustrations as well as the latest developments on new drugs, treatments, and therapies.
