Statistically, cancers in women have about a 50 percent cure rate. With early detection and treatment, the rate dramatically increases to about a 90 percent cure rate. The new edition of Cancer Sourcebook for Women provides updated information on the types of cancer that occur in women. It includes general information and statistics and descriptions of specific types of cancer. Tips for screening and prevention are given along with the latest research findings. The book includes a section on treatments and coping strategies, plus an extensive list of organizational resources for help and information. While Cancer Sourcebook for Women includes a chapter on breast cancer, the subject is treated in greater depth in a separate volume, Breast Cancer Sourcebook.
