Description
From America's leading cancer authority comes a patient's advocacy book for colorectal cancer patients--and their families--that offers medical expertise, practical advice, and emotional support. Colon and rectal cancers (or colorectal cancer) affect more and more people each year and account for about 11 percent of all new cancer cases and 10 percent of all cancer-related deaths. More than 95,000 new cases of colorectal cancer were diagnosed in 1998 alone. Recognizing that there is a 92 percent survival rate if these diseases are treated early, the American Cancer Society, the nation's leader in cancer research, education, and rehabilitation, and Dr. Bernard Levin, one of America's preeminent physicians and an expert on colon and rectal cancer, now offer the most comprehensive resource for patients and their families to turn to.         This book contains the most up-to-date information about these related diseases--from basic facts about what to do when confronted with a diagnosis of colon or rectal cancer to the latest medical data, treatments, and procedures. But more important, this book considers the patient's perspective, providing psychological and emotional support for patients through case histories and anecdotes they can relate to. Moreover, the American Cancer Society's Colorectal Cancer provides easy recipes and a diet plan to help alleviate stress on the body. This important new book addresses the full range of issues that colorectal cancer patients and their families may face.
