Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Patients with breast and gynaecological cancers have to contend with a large number of difficult and challenging issues. To help them to do this it is vital that their health carers are fully informed in all aspects of women's cancers. This book provides a comprehensive and meaningful picture of this oncological area, including epidemiology, histopathology, staging, genetic predisposition, sexual function, fertility, treatment and management, survivorship, and palliative care. To give this book added credibility and holistic application, contributions of women with cancer have been included, and the text is interspersed with patient accounts and experiences.

Women's Cancers is essential reading for all nurses and health care professionals working in cancer care settings, as well as patients and families.
