Over twenty-two thousand American women will get ovarian cancer this year. No screening test exists for this disease, and the symptoms are often vague and mistaken for other illnesses. This cancer is almost always diagnosed in advanced stages, thus requiring extensive surgery and heavy doses of chemotherapy. The recurrence rate is close to 80%, which means most ovarian cancer patients will need additional chemotherapy and sometimes more surgery. In this breakthrough book, Dr. Benedict B. Benigno offers a compassionate, easy-to-understand in-depth look into standard and out-of-the-box ovarian cancer treatments and a thorough examination of the basic science research that will eventually cause a revolution in the way all cancers will be treated. His own patient experiences are interwoven with the stories of survivors who beat the odds. The evolution of a simple, new diagnostic test is described in detail-a test which may prove to be 100% accurate and which may offer women a way to be screened for ovarian cancer when it is at its earliest stage. The cure rate for a stage one ovarian cancer is over 90%! In this book you will: -Learn what symptoms to look for to help diagnose ovarian cancer earlier. -Get clear facts about current modalities of diagnosis and treatment. -Gain an insight from a board certified gynecologic oncologist into new forms of therapy not yet standard of care for ovarian cancer. -Discover how basic science is the key to new ovarian cancer therapy and why molecular biologists will soon replace oncologists. -Find out how advances in genetic research will eradicate many current forms of cancer treatment. The Ultimate Guide to Ovarian Cancer is the one book you want to read if your life has been even remotely touched by ovarian cancer.

Cancer hits hard at any age, but it is especially challenging for teens who must battle their disease while negotiating the tricky terrain of adolescence. This book explores the range of challenges cancer places on both teens who have cancer and teens who have friends or family members with cancer. Denise Thornton follows cancer's devastating path through a teen's life from diagnosis to treatment and survivorship, with special attention to how cancer can affect relations with friends and family, and its impact on school life. Living with Cancer explores the toll cancer can take on self image and looks at how teens facing cancer have found a sense of balance and control. Each chapter takes advantage of expert knowledge and new information that is continually coming to light, but the bulk of the book is made up of narratives shared by teens whose lives have been changed by cancer. This book will prove immensely useful for teens who are facing cancer, as well as friends and family members who want to understand and support them.
