Description

"The Cancer Dictionary, Third Edition" is a common-sense approach to one of the most wide-spread and dreaded diseases in the United States. "The Cancer Dictionary, Third Edition" is meant to provide the cancer patient and general public with easy access to areas of information that are often hard to locate, or when found, are hard for the layperson to understand. The goal of this work is to include every term or treatment that the non-medical reader is likely to encounter, as well as to provide in accessible language the information required to understand that term or concept. With more than 2,500 definitions and terms, "The Cancer Dictionary, Third Edition" provides a wealth of information within a user friendly format. Coverage includes the individual cancers - causes, incidence, symptoms, diagnosis, stages and treatments, diagnostic tests, surgical procedures, therapeutic drugs, types of radiation therapy, biological therapy, side effects, risk factors, carcinogens, prevention, support services, and organizations. Some typical entries include breast cancer, bone marrow transplantation, laser therapy, pap smear, statin, tamoxifen, and tumor. Also included are noteworthy Web sites of national organizations for cancer and AIDS, comprehensive cancer centers by state, and clinical cancer centers by state, as well as a bibliography and an index.
