    Kelvin, a clinical nurse specialist at a cancer center, and Tyson, a nurse practitioner in thoracic oncology, answer 100 common questions patients and their families might have about cancer symptoms and treatment side effects. They cover various treatments; decision making; improving comfort and quality of life during treatment; avoiding infection and caring for skin and hair; coping with effects of treatment on breathing, nutrition, digestion, and elimination; appearance and sexual issues; problems related to nerves, blood, and fluid buildup; other health concerns like smoking and alcohol use; and emotional and social concerns. Medical terms are defined in sidebars and comments from patients are incorporated. Revised and updated, this edition addresses treatment options such as surgeries, targeted therapy, biologic therapies, and alternative treatments, and sexuality, fertility, pregnancy issues, pain, and fatigue management.
