INTELLIGENCE FOR THE FIGHT AGAINST CANCER The second edition of the book on colorectal cancer (colon and rectal cancer) in the Intelligent Patient Guide series, national best-selling books for cancer patients and their families.
Patients who take an active part in making decisions about their treatment are better able to deal with their illness than are patients who give control to their doctors.
The book provides information on all aspects of colon and rectal cancer and equips patients with the knowledge needed to take an active part in their treatment.
Topics include: what cancer is, the symptoms your doctor watches for, how you can prevent colorectal cancer, which screening test is best and when should it be started?, when to have surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation, which treatments to avoid, what actually happens when you undergo surgery, possible complications of surgery, side effects of chemotherapy and radiation, alternative treatments, and psychological effects of colorectal cancer.
The following quote is by former CEO Canadian Cancer Society and National Cancer Institute of Canada: The Intelligent Patient Guide has been at my side for the last eight months as I fought cancer.
When I needed (information) it never failed me.
