Treating cancer has always been a major challenge. Although great strides in treatment have taken place in recent years, all too often current treatments are less than effective, or patients relapse. Newer methods of cancer treatment, namely targeted therapy and immunotherapy, have generated great excitement in the scientific community. These newer methods of cancer treatment hold promise for patients who otherwise may have few options. This book describes the essential features of cancer treatments available to the general public in an engaging and stimulating manner, using the principles of health literacy. A simple, question/answer format and the use of illustrations, tables, charts, and boxes that highlight definitions, facts, and website links provide more detailed information. Features:

Provides questions and answers about the characteristics of cancer, diagnosis, classifications, surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, targeted therapy, adoptive cell therapy, new developments, and more

Cites numerous in-text Web links to information at the National Institutes of Health, the National Cancer Institute, journals, and other online sources

Uses animations, practical tips, charts and tables, figures, and photos to explain topics under discussion
