Abstract:

The cancers are a ubiquitous group of diseases that will affect an individual s life in some way or another. A diagnosis of cancer for a patient or loved one automatically generates questions. Oncologists have different techniques when delivering the prognosis including allowing the news to sink in before going further into details while others share so much that the details get lost in the emotional overload. This leaves a person desperate for honest and uncomplicated answers. This book presents the most commonly asked questions and provides compassionate, helpful answers.
