What Nobody Tells You About Cancer
Date:6/24/2013

FAIRFIELD, Calif. (PRWEB) June 24, 2013

Information is the best weapon in the fight for your life. Author Kevin Ryan, MD, FACP, empowers patients with knowledge in his book, “When Tumor is the Rumor and Cancer is the Answer.”

In the book, Ryan uses authoritative and informative language to guide patients from diagnosis through treatment and even death. The goal, he says, is to make patients active participants in their treatment, at home and in the examination room.

“Cancer patients and their families can lower anxiety by being informed and comfortable voicing concerns,” Ryan says. “Autonomy in the examination room leads to better collaboration with the entire team of cancer practitioners, and ultimately better treatment.”

The book analyzes a wide scope of topics, from sexual health to spiritual support, making it a truly comprehensive guide for patients, families and physicians. Ryan also tells the stories of 10 former patients, whose heroic tales will inspire and motivate patients currently fighting cancer.

“The knowledge gap between oncologists and patients causes undue anxiety,” Ryan says. “The entire experience can be better for patients and their families when they remain active, motivated participants in treatment.”
