Let this book be your guide as you let go of fear and focus on getting well.

Each year, more than 1 and a half million Americans alone will hear the words “you have cancer.” These three small words inevitably signal dramatic changes for the rest of life, setting in motion a chain of events that are often unnecessarily plagued by confusion. For every one of these patients, and their families, Ranjana Srivastava offers an empathic and expert field guide to this uncharted terrain. With wisdom and warmth, Srivastava demystifies the labyrinthine world of the illness. What is cancer and how is it treated? Why isn't cancer always operable? How should diagnoses be shared with children? What is the best diet during and after treatment? How can pain be managed? These basic questions are often overrun by the complexity of the oncological world, and the limits of office visits and doctor schedules. This book then becomes an ideal companion, and portable patient advocate, that makes the experience of cancer diagnosis, treatment, and recovery comprehensible.
