Cancer Patients Appreciate Encouragement

No one is more devastated than the person who gets the overwhelming diagnosis, “You have cancer” unless it is the frightened family that also has to hear those terrible words and imagine all that is coming next as time progresses.

What does everyone do after the patient goes through all the tests, doctor visits, making decisions as to what treatment to attempt, and then having to endure those treatments and the many side effects as well as other worries?

It is a blessing that there are uplifting books for cancer patients that help to calm some of the fears of the unknown as the unfortunate ones travel the cancer path. The caregivers and family members also benefit from reading such books and absorbing the knowledge that is given of so many factors that enter into the total picture.

There are so many questions to ask about the challenging stages of the disease, the care required including managed care, the number of medications and treatments, maybe required surgery, psychological and spiritual issues, legal components that need to be taken care of, and perhaps eventually the end-of-life matters regarding final care including hospice and even euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide, if they are allowed in your state.

Just such a straight-talking and common-sense guide is When Tumor Is the Rumor and Cancer Is the Answer, which was written mostly for the patient who is newly diagnosed and the families but can also be extremely helpful at any stage of the disease.

The book’s goal is to provide answers in order to help to reduce the tremendous anxiety. It explains and puts in context the biggest fear- mortality.

Kevin P. Ryan, MD and also FACP and COL USAF (retired) is the author and a Professor at the Davis School of Medicine at UC. He has authored a multitude of clinical and research papers, abstracts, and book chapters in Hematology/Oncology.

Those confronted with cancer are encouraged to marshal their courageous internal resources, conquer their natural fears, and ultimately and hopefully triumph over this devastating experience and learn instead to become cancer survivors.
