The Cancer Dictionary


Product Description
Product Details


Originally published in 1992, this work continues to be the most comprehensive and vital short guide to cancer-related terminology. Coauthors Sarg (medical oncology, St. Vincent's Hosp.; clinical medicine, New York Medical Coll.) and medical communications specialist Gross have revised it to incorporate 15 years' worth of advances made in research and treatment. The 2500-plus A-to-Z entries compress information-dense, emotionally thorny subjects into neutral, easily graspable concepts. Entries are generally one paragraph long and offer numerous cross-references. An appendix containing an updated list of cancer organizations and myriad black-and-white photographs and line illustrations conclude the book. A fundamental guide for patients and their families, this remains highly recommended for all public libraries and health care-focused collections. Libraries owning the original should invest in this edition.-Savannah Schroll Guz, formerly with Smithsonian Inst. Libs., Washington, DC Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
