Current scientific information in an accessible format

Complete with the most up-to-date patient treatment guidelines, this medical guide covers every aspect of basal and squamous cell skin cancer, from what the risk factors are to the benefits of early diagnosis to living healthily after treatment. Critical questions to ask the health care team are provided, as is an advanced dictionary of cancer-related terms. This pocket-sized reference aims to raise public awareness of skin cancer to promote early detection and emphasizes that all patients should be well-informed and play an active role in planning their own treatment.
