The best available science presented in a concise and comprehensive manner

More than 221,000 people will be diagnosed with lung cancer in the United States this year alone, 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 includes chapters on causes of lung cancer, early detection, diagnosis and staging, and treatment. This new edition is updated with the latest patient treatment guidelines, provides critical questions to ask a health care team, and includes an advanced glossary of cancer-related terms.
