Lung Cancer: The Facts

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 1984 - Health & Fitness - 148 pages
Lung cancer is primarily a disease of well-developed affluent countries. It is by far the most common cancer in men, and could become more prevalent in women than breast cancer. Yet, although it is common, preventable, and sometimes curable, very little information is available about it. In a clear, accessible style, this thoroughly updated revised edition provides the answers to the questions patients with lung cancers or those involved with them are likely to ask. The first section describes the causes, diagnosis, and progression of the disease, and includes a chapter on stoping smoking. The next section deals with the curative and symptomatic treatments available for the different types of lung cancer. The third section, new for this edition, discusses the future prospects for the disease and its treatment. Also included are a glossary, a list of further reading, and an extensive list of addresses of organizations which can provide help and advice.
