About

Overview

Cancer Sourcebook for Women, Fourth Edition offers updated information about gynecologic cancers and other cancers of special concern to women, including breast cancer, cancers of the female reproductive organs, and cancers responsible for the highest number of deaths in women. It explains cancer risks - including lifestyle factors, inherited genetic abnormalities, and hormonal medications - and methods used to diagnose and treat cancer. Practical suggestions for coping with the treatment side effects are provided, and a section on cancer survivorship discusses methods for maintaining quality of life during and after treatment. The book concludes with a glossary of cancer-related terms, a directory of resources, and facts about locating support groups.
