Abstract:

"What's the difference between targeted therapy and immunotherapy? If you're a melanoma patient, you should know. Unfortunately, most melanoma literature focuses on prevention. Patients receive a terrifying, life-threatening diagnosis and subsequently find a scarcity of information on treatment options. Melanoma: Not Just Skin Cancer is the book to fill that void. Written by a melanoma survivor with extensive knowledge of breakthrough technologies, scientific research, clinical trials, and patient empowerment, it's a comprehensive guide to navigating melanoma treatment. Real-life success stories will inspire patients to fight for their own health and remind them that they are not alone. Catherine M. Poole survived a melanoma diagnosis twenty-five years ago. Yale University Press published her first book on this topic, Melanoma Prevention, Detection, and Treatment, in 1998 and a revised edition in 2005. Today, she's a noted expert on melanoma treatment and an advocate for research and patient empowerment"--Back cover.
