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.
