Overview

William Lydiatt, M.D. and Perry Johnson, M.D., have worked with hundreds of mouth and throat cancer patients. They understand the emotional turmoil patients and their families go through after a cancer diagnosis, and they know how being informed can relieve some of that stress. Topics covered in this book include how early detection leaads to high cure rates; symptoms that could mean cancer; the emotional side of the cancer; how doctors make a diagnosis; staging the cancer and why it so important; surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy—how they kill cancer; reconstructive surgery; and experimental treatment through clinical trials.
