Read an Excerpt

For over 25 years, Living with Lung Cancer has been helping patients and their loved ones face the future with greater hope and confidence.

Lung cancer is a scary disease. The new patient is understandably confused and frightened. The future is uncertain, and it's filled with a dazzling array of unfamiliar medical and surgical terms and procedures. Living with Lung Cancer helps people cope -- with the disease, it treatments and (maybe most of all) their nameless fears.

By interviewing a large number of patients and their spouses, the authors learned the countless questions they have, including those that patients find difficult to ask in a doctor's office.

Living with Lung Cancer provides easy-to-understand information about

  •  Diagnostic tests
  •  Treatments and their side effects
  •  Nutrition
  •  The likely prognosis
  •  Coping with emotions
  •  Paying the bills
