Cancer Sourcebook provides updated information about common types of cancer affecting the central nervous system, endocrine system, lungs, digestive and urinary tracts, blood cells, immune system, skin, bones, and other body systems. It explains how people can reduce their risk of cancer by addressing issues related to cancer risk and taking advantage of screening exams. Various treatment choices - including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy - are discussed, and facts are provided about cancer clinical trials and other ongoing research. The book concludes with a glossary of related terms, a directory of national cancer organizations, and suggestions for finding community-based resources.
