Description - So It's Cancer: Now What? by Ranjana Srivastava

'You have cancer.' These three small words have the power to dramatically change your existence. They can set in motion events that leave you - the patient - feeling out of control of your own body and circumstances. And while there are still many mysteries about cancer, it's important to understand the illness and how it will affect your life. With her trademark wisdom and warmth, Ranjana Srivastava guides you through the challenging and complex world of the disease. What is cancer and how is it treated? Why can't I have an operation? What should I eat, and how do I manage pain? She equips you with the knowledge to make informed decisions on the most daunting questions, such as how to find the right oncologist, and how best to break the news to your family. So it's Cancer- Now What? is a practical, comprehensive guide to what to do when cancer enters your life, by medical oncologist and award-winning author Ranjana Srivastava. Praise for Ranjana Srivastava's previous books 'A moving examination of the way doctors and patients communicate.' The Australian 'Enlightening.' The Age 'A humane treatise exploring the relationship between doctors and their patients.' West Australian
