Synopsis

The Cancer Solution: Taking Charge of your Life with Cancer by Jack C. Westman, M.D., shows how much of the failure of the War on Cancer─and more importantly, much of the potential for finally winning it─has to do with the definition of cancer. 

This book is a wake-up call and a call to action for cancer patients, their loved ones and the general public. Conventional cancer care needs to be vastly improved according to the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the National Cancer Institute. Patients know it firsthand. They are obliged to accept chances for 5-year survival with likely debilitation rather than complete remissions (cures). Everyone is paying the price of excessive cancer care costs in their health care insurance.
 
The sun rises and the sun sets. It seems like the sun rotates around the Earth. Cancer cells rise and are killed by surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. It seems like cancer is a disease. But the sun does not rotate around the Earth, and cancer is not a disease. The many kinds of cancer cells are the products of the disease neoplasia that can emerge from normal cells in our bodies' organs and tissues.
 
OLD MODEL: Treatment is determined by a tumor's location in the body without regard for the molecular characteristics of the patient or the tumor and for the environment of the tumor.
 
NEW MODEL: Research will focus on how cancer cells evade the natural defenses in the body's immune system that prevent and stop the formation of cancer cells through the process of neoplasia. This kind of research is finally beginning to lead to the successful treatment of some forms of cancer and should be given the highest priority.
 
A usable handbook for cancer for both patients and health professionals, The Cancer Solution empowers patients to take control of their life with cancer and advocate for improving cancer research and treatment.
