WOMEN'S CANCERS is for every woman who is diagnosed with or at risk of lung, breast, pelvic, uterine, ovarian, vaginal, vulvar and rare gynaecological cancers. It has, also, become a standard resource for every health advocate and woman concerned about cancer risks for others in her family. It addresses all the issues surrounding a cancer diagnosis, including: * Explanations of biopsies, pap smears and blood counts * Finding the right doctor and assembling a "get well team" * Coping with chemotherapy and radiation treatments Millions of women worldwide are now living with a history of cancer. Survival rates for all cancers combined are close to 60 percent, but sometimes survival has its consequences. So the third edition has a new chapter on late and long-term effects of cancer. As more is known about effects, treatment modalities and intensity are altered to minimise them. The more common late and long-term effects are physiologic, functional, cosmetic, sensory, cognitive and/or psychosocial in nature.
