The Gale Encyclopedia of Cancer: A Guide to Cancer and Its Treatments by Jacqueline L. Longe
In a statement immediately preceding the introduction, the publisher states clearly that this encyclopedia is "is intended to supplement, not replace, consultation with a physician or other healthcare professional." That said, this second edition of a work first published in 2001 is an excellent resource for anyone seeking a greater understanding of cancer. Specific cancers, diagnostic procedures, treatments, and much more are discussed thoroughly and in straightforward lay language. Cancer biology, Carcinogenesis, Cancer prevention, Clinical trials, and other cancer-related topics are among the 450 or more entries presented in A-Z format. Uniform entries on specific types of cancer begin with a definition, a description, and demographic and statistical information before focusing on the details--causes, symptoms, diagnosis (including tests and procedures), e-treatment, prognosis, patient coping, home care, prevention, and special concerns. The frank and rather clinical-sounding treatment discussion includes staging, standards, and, when appropriate, alternative therapies, anticipated side effects, and even questions for the doctor. Key terms used in the discussion are identified and explained; clinical trials are noted.
