A compassionate, informative manual for patients and their loved ones

William Lydiatt, M.D. and Perry Johnson, M.D., have worked with thousands of head and neck cancer patients. They understand the emotional turmoil patients and families go through after a cancer diagnosis, and they know that keeping patients informed relieves stress. Topics they cover in this book include: getting a diagnosis, the importance of early detection, and staging cancer in order to determine the best treatments. They also discuss treatments, including surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, and experimental treatments through clinical trials.
