Description - Women's Cancers by Kerry Anne McGinn
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.
