Cancer is a Word, Not a Sentence 2006 - Robert Buckman, M.D.

The first ever complete guide to understanding what happens after a cancer diagnosis, Cancer is a Word, Not a Sentence explains the entire process and helps the patient and family make sense of everything that is going on, and to cope with it.

The book is not a dry compilation of cancer facts and biology. Instead, it is a guide for use in the real world. It shows the reader what the diagnosis means, what the tests are all about, how to weigh the benefits and risks of various treatment options, and how to cope with side-effects, uncertainties and emotional ups and downs.

Topics include:

  • Why clinical trials are worth considering
  • How to talk about cancer with family and friends
  • How to talk to your medical team
  • How to maintain quality of life
  • Where to get more help
