Advanced cancer is not likely to be cured, but it can frequently be controlled. The physical symptoms can almost always be well managed. This book emphasizes that every person's cancer is unique, and every person has the right to be well-informed and to be the decision-maker in planning treatment to offer the best possible quality of life. Each book in the "Quick Facts" series is both comprehensive and a quick read, with highlighted cover tabs for quick reference of specific topics. This title covers everything from risk factors to living well after cancer treatment; provides critical questions to ask the healthcare team; and educates and empowers patients right from the start. Completely updated with the latest patient treatment guidelines, it includes an advanced cancer dictionary. Topics included are: What is my type of cancer? How many people have it? What are the risk factors? What causes it? Can it be prevented? Can it be detected early? How is it diagnosed? How is it staged? How is it treated? What about complementary and alternative treatments? What should I ask my doctor? What happens after treatment? What's new in research and treatment? and What information resources are available?
