This important book brings together, for the first time, an in-depth examination of the major scientific and social aspects of women and cancer--the second leading cause of death among American women. Prominent cancer specialists present the most recent facts about the causes, treatment, and coping strategies of women affected by this dreaded disease--either as its victims or as caretakers for those with cancer. The major topics include basis statistics, screening and early detection, implications of treatment and its aftermath, risk and benefits, and tobacco. Many of the book's contributions have been supported by the National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society.
